A soft, subtle music gently drifts
Through the chilly April air,
Catching my attention as it uplifts
My awareness to places where
An elegant symphony is playing
On this sunny Easter morn.
To my straining ears it's sweetly saying
That the earth it wishes to adorn
With its melody of hope and renewal
As it tinkles a tiny bluebell
And sounds the note of a magnolia jewel
With a message it seeks to tell
Through the golden voices of daffodils,
The red tulips in colorful choir,
And the cherry tree blossoms' fluffy frills
That sing out their ardent desire
That all rise up and join today
Their song of resurrection.
Humanity choosing a peaceful way
Can change our world's direction.
Molly Moore returned to Hawaii after completing her nursing education in Seattle, Washington. Perhaps her previous career as an international flight attendant is what launched Molly’s "flights of fancy" into poetry. A love of rhythm and rhyme sparks her creative side, especially while outdoors in nature.
