The daffodils are blooming!

From my Journal .. February 7, 2007

It has been a cold wet winter here in Oregon and not the best winter of my life. Today it was another rainy day. I felt a bit gloomy as I drove down the hill going to town on the winding road past the cemetary. Each year on the slope of the drive into the cemetary the daffodils bloom before any others. Today I was delighted and up- lifted to see they were blooming. These words came to my mind.

The daffodils are blooming!
I see with a thrill
On the curve on the road
High on the hill

The daffodils are blooming!
My gloom turns to cheer
'Tis a promise of spring
When these flowers appear

I drive on with a smile.
Spring time is looming.
Though It still may be raining ..
The daffodils are blooming!
