GBMD : 1st March 2011

Garden Bloggers’ Muse Day is hosted by Carolyn Choi at Sweet Home and Garden Chicago.

LINES WRITTEN IN EARLY SPRING

 Through primrose tufts, in that green bower,
The periwinkle trailed its wreaths;
And ’tis my faith that every flower
Enjoys the air it breathes.

The birds around me hopped and played,
Their thoughts I cannot measure:–
But the least motion which they made
It seemed a thrill of pleasure.

The budding twigs spread out their fan,
To catch the breezy air;
And I must think, do all I can,
That there was pleasure there.

With apologies to William Wordsworth  because I dropped a few verses.

  1. Lovely little ditty to herald the coming of Spring.
    Well done Mother Nature – you do a beautiful job.

  2. I wouldn’t have recognised this as Wordsworth – though the last line moved me. I don’t know how long this was but you are a good editor. This (at least to someone who doesn’t know the full original) is a perfect length and memorable.

    1. Thank you Esther. It was just the first and last verses I dropped. They were a bit like bookends and were easy to take out without losing any meaning, although Wordsworth wouldn’t agree!
