Spring Festival



On Blair Mountain,
   wildflowers bloom profusely
   in springtime.
Tall Blue Phlox bend and sway
   in the chilly breeze
   while sprightly
Dandelions frolic among them;
   thick stands of
Cattails huddle next to ponds,
   their flowering spikes reaching
   for the sun; copious
Violets creep over greening
   meadows, transforming
   them to blue velvet, and convey
   a stunning image as they vie
   with dazzling yellow
Buttercups for “Best of Show.”
