Trees, plants and grass entwine
Branches, leaves and twigs
Caught in a Springtime tangle
Singing birds alight and leave
The air is filled with Insects, flies and bugs
Creeping, eating, mating, buzzing
Living out their lives in
This great green metropolis.
Sounds, scents, sights to please
the senses. River, path, trees,
birds respond to Spring.
chuir siad gliondar ar mo chroí,*
glowing, golden bright.
*they brought joy to my heart
“Primroses in a
ditch, surviving wind and rain,
lighting up the gloom.”
