Ode to the Crocuses

by Jim Farfaglia

Ode to the Crocuses


You are such a welcome sight,

showing up alongside my house

like a table set for spring.


You’re first to welcome a brighter sky,

raising your goblets in celebration

of an end…and a beginning,


the first to welcome the warm rains

that you and the others drink in,

awakening the essence that you are,


the first to welcome the bees,

who knock knock knock

on your yellow and purple doors,


the first to welcome my eyes,

searching for the new season,

and finding it with your arrival.
