The buds of spring;
Fragrant lilacs, tulips & delicate forsythia;
Colors emerging from the snow.
A new dress to twirl;
A wide brimmed hat with flowers & silky ribbons;
Shiny new shoes tapping and dancing.
Baskets full of grass;
Crayon colored jellybeans & chocolate treats;
Tiny treasures making us smile.
A house full of family;
Cousins playing games & laughing;
Aunts, uncles, moms and dads smiling around the table.
