Almond Blossom by Kathleen Dalziel

| No TrackBacks
The almonds are out
   In the orchard again,
A fluttering rout
   In the wake of the rain.

A delicate froth
   On the wash of the wind, 
Defying the wrath
   Of a season unkind.

A fairy-land lattice
   Against the low sky; 
A miracle that is
   The crown of July. 

All blowing about,
   So that someone may say 
The almonds are out
   In the orchard to-day.
