Post # 673 SLEEPING WITH THE TULIPS (poesie)

Its ever this time of year
My senses seem to feel
“Neath the soil’s white quilt
Bulbs and perennials, and
Small woodland critters-
All curled up, warm- breathing
Winter- sleeping with the tulips.

When its wake-up time
There’ll be no need of summons,
Only the slow melting quilt,
And warming topsoil and air
My joyful senses will then see-
The bulbs’ green intelligence, and
Furry things that cavort and squeak.
