Kentucky Color: Last Month of Spring

By Billy Joe Fudge
The Sun rises early and
Warms the soul on frosty morns;
Purple Martin scouts on wing
Arrive the first month of Spring.

Redbud first and then Dogwood
Are majestically reborn;
Peepers and Robins both sing
During the mid-month of Spring.

Then the Single Peony
With yellow and lace adorned,
In landscapes awash with green
Appear the last month of Spring!
