Crocus Sunday poem
Written by Tim Relf inspired by the beautiful display of Crocus Tommasinianus (Tommies)
When it's still big-coat weather
still make-your-nose-run weather
when frosts still and snow stays,
the 'Tommies' come.
These, the first fragile
splash of spring,
drifting into life
So pause awhile
by The Sandstone Garden.
there under the acers-
See their flowers open
as day unfolds,
close as it folds backin.
It's as if they're reaching outwards.
for the perfect touch of purple.
