Spring song

I am a grizzled tree


But 


Your lips petal my blue daffodils 
Your verses salt my sky 


So


Spring me the forest rain
Spring me the summer sun      
            
In your tender hands,


I am a berry seed, 
Budding at the tip of your tongue  


We listen to Vivaldi's concerto
Our spring song still so beautiful

  12. So wonderful when people who have been together for years still have that 'spring love' kind of feeling for each other. A breath of fresh air in spring. Bring on Vivaldi!
