grey-green morning

grey-green morning
hosta plants grow
by different trees
and by the porch

colorful primroses
in the yard
grow and bloom
from garden to lawn

lilacs along the roads
and in the yard soon

last week in May
reading in my study
with an open window
birds sing in the yard

hosta plants grow

hosta plants grow
around the ash tree stump
an abundance of health
and new green

as if to say
we knew you would not
last the storm
we are here

there is new beauty now
new hope and a new time
