    Family Trees

    One fall when leaves were gone the clearings came.
    Those worth the haul were taken, but the rest
    Would have to carry on. As if a flame
    Had come to burn this forest’s ancient best,
    The parent trees, the wisdom they possessed,
    The ground turned bare as youthful family trees
    Preserved their hold on Earth tenaciously.

    A Late Spring in Garden Valley

    The searing cold has gone -
    at last
    Snow has kissed the Dogwood's bloom
    And lilacs come to life !
    Bees once more tread upon dandelion
    heads
    As oak gives way to pine

    Thanks for entering, tailor STATELY! You are the winner!

    I like the alliteration in "lilacs come to life".

    Chain

    There was a dog, dog, dog,
    In a wood, wood, wood,
    Sleeping under a Dogwood tree.
    There was this girl, girl, girl
    In the wood, wood, wood,
    Her name was Annie Lee.

    The girl, girl, girl,
    In the wood, wood, wood,
    Her name was Annie Lee,
    Found the dog, dog, dog
    In the wood, wood, wood,
    Sleeping under the Dogwood tree.

    There was this boy, boy, boy
    In a wood, wood, wood,
    His name was John Albee
    He found the girl, girl, girl,
    Who found the dog, dog, dog
    Sleeping under the Dogwood tree.

    Where is the boy, boy, boy
    His name is John Albee
    Where is the girl, girl, girl
    That was called Annie Lee?
    And where the dog, dog, dog
    That slept under the Dogwood tree?

    That is a mistery
    For you and me!
    "You can always find something better than death."
    Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm, The Bremen Town Musicians

    Dogwood Tree

    It was our neighbor’s dogwood tree
    That prettified our lawn
    And made us proud that we lived there
    When Spring said there’s no need to care
    The Winter has long gone.

    beauty
    is a narrative
    of the free
    but with a dogwood tree
    it excels styling
    it is the lining
    of
    stars in their milling
    startling
    horizons and shinning.
    it may never try
    but when it does it sigh
    it is just that
    good
    it fly
