April Marching

April Marching

I never heard the command,
Universal it would seem, by

The participants in lock step
Struggling to break cover

Together, not to be left behind,
Peeking out at daylight after

Nine months below ground
Gathering enough strength

To capture the public's eye.
As pigments liberally spread

On accepting stretched canvas
By an aspiring young artist

Wielding extra thick brushes
Wetted, dripping with paint,

Spring bulbs emerge in unison
To play their color rhapsody

In family gardens they inhabit.
Each Spring this army masses.

Ronald C. Downie
