Helios gazed down at the winter-bound Earth
Frozen and stiff, lacking both joy and mirth
“Earth needs some color,” he firmly declared,
“Yellow should cheer the glum and the scared.”
So at the end of the two ‘Uaries
He sent down some miniscule Emissaries.
First to leave was Winter Jasmine
To fill the void in Winter’s chasm
Next to go were little crocus
To help new Spring to thrive and focus
As March began the meteorological season
Dandelions spread sans rhyme or reason
Forsythia bushes shot forth new shoots
Daffodil bulbs grew flowers and roots
Jonquils showed their sunny faces
Pansies bloomed in sunlit spaces
The Easter Lily tall and fragrant
Was a welcome guest and not a vagrant.
The Earth welcomed these sunbeam guests
and wore them like it’s Sunday best.
