Blossoms Blow in the Wind

Blossoms Blow in the Wind

The pedals, like snow, as it’s blown from the trees

Reminds me of marriage on humble knees

The beautiful blossoms, the attractiveness of spring;

Birds and the bees and pollination has its fling.

Then the trees in greens of summer;

And the pedals, blown all around and under;

The glamour gone; pollination took place

Now the family, off springs we face.

In the harvest the leaves are ripe

And fruit is picked and what a sight.

The blossoms of spring forever gone;

Grandma and grandpa their pedals have shone;

Now they see the beauty of the young;

The blossom of their youth, their day was sung.

Pedals, like snow, as it blows from the trees;

Youthfulness of childhood; memories come with ease
