GBMD : 1st March 2011

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


 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!


  3. Thank you for joining in GBMD which I created a few years ago. Please let me know when you post so that others will be able to visit your blog and read your post. An excellent selection!
