An April Dawn
Robert K. Johnson


When I draw open
the kitchen curtains,
my patio
offers me
the yellow strength
of its daffodils.

Lovely in its simplicity, Robert . . . a look out of the window, for sure.

Love this poem. Here in the northwest we are having a very cool Spring. Result: all our blooms are lasting so much longer!
