FORSYTHIA PHALANXES

FORSYTHIA PHALANXES

Knobby stems start to sprout,

But not with green leaves….

Rather with yellow flowers shout:

Welcome back, you bees!

Yellow flowing over walls,

Trellises like waterfalls…

Exploding the brown of spring

Till flowers and grass appear!

Some are bushes strictly trimmed,

Others growing pale and slim…

Forsythia roams around

Wherever it can grow!

Thankful we, for instant light,

That promises a “real good” fight…

Vanquishing the doldrums here

By many yellow sprouts!
