A sure sign of spring
Are the tiny lilac beauties (wood anemones)
Blooming in the woods.
You can’t but help feel happy
When you see their merry heads
Nodding on the forest floor.
Their petals become paper thin
In the sunlight.
I notice a dry leaf glowing
Like a stained glass window.
These flowers are protected in the Stockholm region
So you’re not allowed to pick them.
I’m happy about that —
As their beauty remains for all to enjoy,
Spread at our feet like a blanket of dreams.
