Thinking of Spring

At Union Square the twigs are twisting

and the pussy-willow

 is enchanting.

The trees are thickening and budding.

On Long Island, the young ones are set to work digging

and the skies are brilliant bright in the city.

On the High Line crews are cutting back winter’s dead growth - observed from above by a rather languid maiden.

At home, daffs are picturesque

as are tulips.

At the diner on the corner Mr. Beady-Eyes tells us he’s thinking of hopping.
Today it’s pouring with rain, of course
But tomorrow I start planting the tree pits.

Happy Spring!


  1. Don't tempt fate. It might be snowing tomorrow.

  2. I think it looks like spring is coming. How exciting !
    We are almost into summer .

    cheers, parsnip

  3. Having briskly turned the page on March, it's grand to welcome all the promise of April. No fooling! Grand seeing you and Robert the other day. xo


I look forward to hearing from you!
