Celebrities of Spring

This poem was written at a time someone had mentioned that I should practice writing light poems. I gave it a thought and took their suggestion. I had lots of fun writing it.

Celebrities of Spring

Ms. Clavia Miniata, blossoms well in conceit
Three years to get ready, loves crowded streets
Leave her undisturbed, she needs her space
It’s Spring Time – She stands with grace
Ms. Hyacinths – known for her perfume
Spaces - strong winds to smell in bloom
Mr. Bulbs often rushes, he never has time
He comes-he goes-three weeks in his prime
Mr. Blue Bells too early – misses everything
Unaware of it all, he blooms in early spring
Who can forget the Dutch’s Iris and Crocus
Standing in attention – snails their focus
In church nearby singing Lily of the Valley
Corm in great cheer – it sounds like a rally
Color and blossom – they all have their fun
Most happy in dew time with smiling Mr. Sun
Most ticklish when they see funny Mr. Hose
Makes loud noises – shoots water from his nose
And this same crowd comes back every year
With joy, color, love, and for us…great cheer
