while armfuls of green stems stretch out.
Toward skies of deep blue,
chill winds blow strong.
Yellow faces waving,
bright smiles beam toward the sun.
Rejoice-the daffodils are up!

One of the first flowers to pop up, in early spring, are the yellow trumpet daffodils. I look forward to seeing their cheery faces. This poem was born from observing them bloom. And even though mine were buried for 4 days under snow, they have perked back up, and are smiling in the 70 degree sun!
The pictures here are of the daffodils that bloom in my garden in early April.
I am joining in with Poets United for their weekly poetry link up for poets who blog, and Sanaa@A Dash of Sunny for her Prompt Nights every Friday. This week’s theme is ‘a drop of sunshine’; what gives us more sunshine than the first daffodils of spring!
I leave you with a few additional words about rejoicing in spring. I welcome you to download the photo and share it.
