FLOWERS OPENING AT SPRING-TIME

FLOWERS OPENING AT SPRING-TIME

Driving on the way to work

I saw a flower op’ning…

Running along the near sidewalk

With ponytail behind jolting.

Oh, to be young and fresh once more,

To run in sheer abandon…

Crocuses and dandelions too

Will push up as though random!

I cannot run like that,

It is not of my choosing…

I have grown too stiff and fat

And my youth I’m losing!
