Spring light

Spring is all about

Flowers waiting to unfurl

And reach their full potential.

It’s about the lone wild daffodil

Growing on the shore of the lake.

It’s about the wild weeds

That are as beautiful as flowers.

(Yes – that’s Oscar in the background.)

And – most of all – it’s about

The magical light of being.

For more magic, please visit: Our World.

    Daffodil, my favourite flower. Always connect it with Wordsworth’s wonderful poem.
