Doorway to Spring

Spring woods through the framing of a divided tree

Glimpses of green
newly seen,
make my heart sing,
ah, spring.
Purple, yellow, red,
each bright head,
greeting songbirds
without words.

Notes: This is my Poetry Friday ditty of the day. Thanks Buffy Silverman for hosting! Thanks also to Jama, on whose post I won a FREE BOOK! Woo-hoo! Here a tiny taste of my huge feast:

everywhere is chirping
and now there is purple
