Love in Spring

Spring is back with budded head flaring
Bare ground aroused with colours soon blaring
Broken stem and close pruned roses
Exploding outward in outrageous poses
Crusted bough under lichen and mould
Softened by green as fresh leaves unfold
Sap running tide-like through stems newly hatched
Blossoms appearing with honey bees attached
Time when young boys grow more gallant inside
And Gals feel a buoyance their faces can’t hide
For great loves begin slowly the way this year’s buds will
From the stems of old roses that are blossoming still
