With the blue grey greens of the winter forest,
for a background,
Spring's palette is emerging
with a wonderful brilliance in the garden.
As bright as the colours squeezed straight from the artist's tube.
Dobs of Yellow in the cups of the daffodils,
Splashes of Red around the tulips,
A hush of Blue of reflected sky in the bird bath
Shades of Purple in the Dutch Irish,
Flames of Orange in the wall flower display
While the fresh sea of Green fills in all the remaining space.
At Spronk’s place Spring's rainbow is springing about.
'Everything you need is close at hand'
