Delight Twice

We left our Midwest home this month
as trees had just begun to bud
only daffodils had yet to bloom

For a week we vacationed in the South,
where spring was in its heyday  
lush green trees, bright peonies, splashes of wild roses

Upon return to Michigan
we were greeted by the hawthorn
with her blossomed sweet scent,
pear trees were blooming,
oaks were bursting with potential,
ferns unfurled their fiddleheads,
pachysandra sported purple

Such a blessing to behold
spring springing twice this year
