FORSYTHIA PROFUSION

FORSYTHIA PROFUSION

 

In the April-May continuum,

So gardeners might say…

The pre-leaf flowering forsythia

Puts on a grand display;

Yellow flowers open in droves

Along the pithy stems,

Singly, bushes or in banks

They are the creme of cremes.

Brightness on a cloudy day,

Bright yellow that warms

Amid the April showers,

Hosting bee swarms;

Then the leaves come out in time

And green below stem skins,

That yellow blast of sunlight cast

Proves springtime weather wins!
