Spring offensive

Buy large flowering crocus bulbs Crocus Mixed Colours: £6.99 Delivery by  Crocus

 

Seed and bulb
        sown on the lawns
of yesteryear
        to flower
in February to signal
        a tentative spring

frail crocuses
        whisps of colour
lilac and lavender
        purple and cream
here today and gone
        tomorrow

in a world
        of permanent change
where beauty
        is ever present
but never lasts :
        only lovers are
dressed for the
        counteroffensive

All hail!
