April Violets

From winter’s slumber
Cold and deep,
From being cocooned
In blissful sleep,
She wakes to sunshine
Melting snow,
Awake to the glimmer
Of hope that grows
Like April violets
Faith renewed
Her colour palette
Springtime hues.

Pink Carnations

Through the ages
Waters deep
Ships have sailed
Promises sleep.

Lifetimes gone
Lifetimes lost
But yet again
Love is borne

On wings that fly
Wings that soar
Gently land
On love’s pure shore.

Pink carnations
Tender, true,
Pink carnations
Eternal - you.
