Spring Tulips


The tulips I planted last fall
Were brown-skinned and shaped like a ball
Except for the name
They looked just the same
Identical? No, not at all.

They tremble and bob in the light
Fresh-born from their underground night
Such transient shading!
It's already fading.
And I'll have to remember this sight.

Our tulips are just peeking out,
From the rain, the snow and the fog.
I think they'll survive
And possibly thrive
Or fall to the hungry groundhog.

Enjoy them today...they will be frozen tomorrow!
