Spring bubbles

Before summer got into full swing over here,

Simson and I went out one early, dewy morning

To enjoy the happy suns of daffodils;

Daffodils

Dewy bubbles

On purple baubles

Dewy bubbles

And the vibrant splash

Of sunny silken petal.

Yellow copy

It was hard work for Simson to lie still

And watch me —

Just look at the concentration on his face!

Concentration
