Ephemeral

Daffodil time as the hour moves forward
April showers dilly-dallying for Lent
The woods and the fields a cornucopia
Of bird song and scrumptious the flow
In receipt from the hills

A smidgen of frost encountered at daybreak
Caught unaware so a panic in name but then
Perspicacity helped to assure us as we listened
To the paean and the verve of Spring

Now vernal growth environmentally burgeon
Replenishing woodlands hedgerows and fields
Across teeming waters airborne migrants
Scud in their flight to floral yields

By the Roe's turbid waters young lambs gambol
As young lovers stroll in a light refreshing wind
Oh 'tis a time to rejoice in the mystique of the
Season but alas it is ephemeral- ephemeral like
Our kind
