First Daffodil

My first daffodil popped this morning. 

I feel joy at seeing the bright yellow trumpet
with its collar of sun-coloured petals!

   I love daffodils.  They’re my favourite flowers,
    full of life, enthusiastic gold.

      And the spring squills are everywhere. 

Blue variations peek from the greening grass
in random patterns,
wherever I have planted them
and wherever the squirrels have moved them.

    It is the last day of April.  The flowers are coming…

      Release from the clutches of maritime winter!  At last…
