The Allure of Spring


Tender blushing blossoms

Daintily seated high above

Flaunt your sweet fragrance

From windswept boughs of love


Show us your splendor

Fill the breeze with your perfume

Delight the wayfarers

Who linger in admiration of your bloom


Tantalize the bees

As they buzz to and fro

Give up your nectar

As delicate winds smoothly flow


Tempt us with your beauty

Never rescind your allure

Captivate our weary hearts

May your winsome loveliness endure

    We have a tree out front, in the neighbours yard actually. It is gorgeous in spring. I always look forward to its bloom.

  4. I wish these blooms would last all year. Unfortunately, they only last 1 -2 weeks.
