       REDBUD

Redbud, redbud on the hill,
Wild plum in the hollow!
February's with us still
But March is sure to follow.

February, bleak and chill,
Is fraying at the edges
And thorny quince and daffodil
Are brightening up the hedges.

Now let the north wind shout at will
His brash defiant phrases.
Today, I picked a daffodil,
Tomorrow, there'll be daisies!
