Poetry Friday: Crocus

Crocus

Green leaves

And gold petals

Line up at spring's doorway

Where we trade our winter wearies

For hope.

I just wanted to stop by and say I enjoyed the Michigan notable book I read for your challenge. It took a while for the library to match me up with Working Words but it was worth the wait. I enjoyed the poems and stories a lot. Thanks for the inspiration.

Thanks for the nice comments!

Of course, this being Michigan, my crocus are now looking a wee bit chilly; and they won't be surprised if they find themselves covered in snow some time in the next couple of weeks. But what a delightful sign of spring they are! Every year, I love them even more.
