Peace . . .
In the words of Inez Marrs, there is "Indisputable Evidence" that spring is here.
In the blaze of crimson sunsets and the pastel dew of dawn
In chocolate clods of earth and every chartreuse lawn;
In the trees' bud-swollen branches
And dandelions' lace,
In hyacinths' obeisance
And tulips' erect grace
In each intrepid crocus and timid violet;
(My bluebells and pink bleeding hearts)
In pink-fringed apple blossoms and the pansies' playful faces,
In dogwoods' pearly whiteness and magenta redbud laces;
Spring once more has come to earth,
There's proof in nature's art,
But better proof I have within,
Where spring in in my heart.
