Spring Buds--By Phyllis Babcock--Canada

Spring Buds

Seedlings drift on cool spring breeze
Gently floating on each gust of wind
Falling slowly into deep crevices
Touching the fertile earth below
Trees shred the dried remains of winter
Barren trees now enhanced
By various shades of green
Newly formed buds appear
Dew drops kiss the colored blossoms
The sun beams with all it's charm
New growth steadily emerges
Spring adorns a new dress of green.
