Crocuses on the lawns

Crocuses on the lawn

It’s February
            and there are crocuses
on the lawns
            their gold and violet leaves
enjoying the balmy spring air
            From bulbs that lie
below the surface
            they suddenly appear
as if out of nowhere
            but they are messengers
and they bring good cheer
            the worst may not be over
but it’s good to be alive
            and this just may be the year
when love comes your way
            and comes to stay
