but after years of drought and now a little rain,
it seems not all is lost.
I went out to the garden, to see what I cloud see
I spied a little Almond bud upon an Almond tree
and Crabapples were blooming though winter cold is here
a Pansy and a Hyacinth,
a little Rosebud dear
Geranium as well
and in the shadehouse corner a Jacob's Ladder fell
like pearls strung on a necklace with tiny flowers strewn
that mingled their sweet perfume
with that of grass new mown
the presents it bestowed
a lone Anemone smiled up
nodded its head and shyly bowed
Precursors of the Spring to come
the welling tide they promise,
but just for now I am content
with what the heav'ns to me have sent.
