They are standing tall and straight
In a vase on my desk today.
Reminding me that winter days
Will soon be gone away.
The weather has been frosty
And from this damp cold earth,
These beautiful flowers
Have slowly come to birth.

Standing tall and strong
In my garden by the trees,
Nodding very gently
In the winter breeze.
Yet when the cold winds howl
And the rain begins to fall
They bring a brightness to my day
And they still stand tall.

Daffodils in winter ~
Reminding me of spring
The warmer lengthening days ~
The joys that this will bring.
The seasons come and go
And we can measure the hours,
Of the changing of the seasons
By the fragrance of the flowers.

Music you are listening to is Mendelssohn's

"On Wings of Song" ~ one of my very favourite

pieces of music.
