|Bradford Pear Blossoms|
|Redbud in Bloom|
Daffodil trumpets sound the invitation:
Dowagers Bradford first to arrive,
Proper, benevolent chaperones in their lacy caps.
Belles in blue bonnets crowd the dance floor,
Shy primroses blushing in their shadows.
Purple-haired redbuds shake their heads in dismay:
Flaunting their newfangled fashions
As though winter’s shabbiness
Had never been.
