THE CROCUS


THE CROCUS

Old April showers
Made me stay
Inside the window
Half the day.

But I forgave them
When I found
A crocus peeping
From the ground.


(Pen and ink sketches were drawn and the poem was written by my
grandfather (Papa Lee), 1935)

What a treasure! I guess you're seeing them now? We have to get rid of our snow first. They showed up very early in April last year, but they;re still snowbound this year.

I love both of the images! The poem is timeless, I think. I celebrate the way in which you keep your ancestors alive.

Ginnie, Crayons said it all. " I celebrate the way in which you keep your ancestors alive."

There's nothing that I can add that hasn't already been said. A true treasure!

A treasure, indeed! Your connection to your ancestors is a wonderful thing. I don't know a lot about my family, they were never very tight, and it saddens me.
