Poetry: “Coltsfoot”

More spring cheer today.

***~***~***~***

Coltsfoot

 

Little yellow flower

Like a dandelion shrunk

Yet she’s not its kin at all

She blooms there without leaves

 

Shows her face in early spring

Shines brightly like the sun

In my childhood, she was dear

Quite precious to be true

 

She it was who truly said

That spring had just arrived

I picked bouquets in my small hands

And brought them home to mom

 

Even now, quite old and grown

Coltsfoot is still quite dear

In early springtime it’s of her

That I try to catch a glimpse
