Purple


My true first sign of Spring every year delicate and light

reaching out for the sun so bright

marking the start of everything new

at first they are just a few

then slowly more and more of the purple flowers

fill my days with beautiful hours

drinking them in like pressed new wine

delighting the senses both yours and mine

like the lightest grapes they smell

growing where snow just recently fell

the first to appear after winter’s long sleep

an appointment with Spring they must keep

Only a short time the purple to share

every year they greet me just there

Enjoy them while I may

though they be beautiful they cannot stay
