To a Friend

[The light of the sun - Lesser Celandines (ranunculus ficaria, aka pilewort) in bloom in woodland in Co. Clare. How very apt]

Under hedges the violets are coming in bloom
& the Pilewort it shines like the Sun
The Spring it is bursting from the winters cold Tomb
& the sun of Life's smiles has begun

Tis Valentine's Day tomorrow fair maid
& the Snowdrops are looking for thee
The Crocus has got his gold suit ready made
& hopes thy companion to be

So out of two sweethearts be sure & choose one
While choosing is left to thy choice
For Valentine day only comes to be gone
And then true love will be left without voice
