A rondel for spring

wmorning-fog
Edgewood Garden, Washington State

The silhouette of the trees by the lake
The fog enveloping the scene as I look
No birds tweeting, all’s peaceful by the brook
New hope for the morning as the dawn breaks

Winter must be tired and spring awakes
All flowers bloom like in a storybook
The silhouette of the trees by the lake
The fog enveloping the scene as I look

Tortoises are up, happy for their sake
Warblers are singing in their cosy nook
Crocuses and daffodils overtook
Tulips and snowdrops are also awake
The silhouette of the trees by the lake*
