Upon the Very Cusp of Spring


Upon the Very Cusp of Spring


the sighting

of those

first few snowdrops ..

and that

single daffodil

this brand new year ..

felt like

the beginning of spring

and the making of a poem perhaps ..

                our beloved blighty
                sure is keeping us waiting this year, Hyung
                is it still April showers
                if it's been 'at it', since
                sombre, November...
                'and that
                single daffodil
                this brand new year ..'
                wonderfully subtle musicality
                in your rhyming scheme
                (I read and learn)

                      A master poet doesn't spoil, like fine wine gets better with age. 😉
