Will they come again, these woodland wildflowers?
Surely, yes, in their own good time.
Once I started looking through last spring's images and scenes,
I could hardly stop --
and couldn't leave out the orchard, either, buzzing with bees.
But it's the woods I've been missing
during this year's long, housebound winter.
Snow, be gone!
We have calendar spring,
but we're hungry for the real thing!
