Along the Trails -
European Red Currant,
Purple Dead Nettle,
Sweet White Violet,
4 White-tailed Deer,
Winterberry leaves emerging,
Domestic Plum almost in bloom,
Hawthorn leaves getting larger,
As I look out while walking our trails,
there is a green haze from new leaves.
Leaves are out and getting larger on
Choke Cherries, Honeysuckles,
Manitoba Maples, Raspberries,
and Autumn Olives.
I am reminded of scenes from
the distant past i.e. my early school days.
Back then, in the early 50’s, at my one-room
country Kansas School, our school year
was finished at the end of April.
Yes, only 8 months of school.
The poor city kids had to go another month.
Anyway, my memory is of leaves
suddenly opening up along the trails
near the school much like they do now
in Ontario in early to mid-May creating
a new and welcome green-hued vista.
