  2. Hey. Good to be in touch again. I lost the original poem, I think, because I inadvertently highlighted it while saving and update and the little update replaced the original. Something like that. Best guess.
    Anyway, here is the updated, recreation. I made it a personal love letter – in honour of my late wife, sharing with my “Dear Daisy.”

    I Missed the Spring this Year

    I missed the Spring and flowers this year
    and life seems so much less magic,
    Like being invited to the ball
    And not being able to attend.

    The air was so much poorer
    For the lack of their perfume,
    Even the pollen in my eyes
    Seemed so much thinner this year.

    The daffodils were late this year,
    Their colours were somewhat pale.
    The rhododendrons dropped their petals
    Far too soon, the roses lost their allure.

    Love was absent in the air this Spring,
    There were no lovers here around,
    The scent of love’s affection
    Was missing from the atmosphere.

    The Hyacinth was but a shadow, and
    Like the rose that died upon the vine,
    The lilac lost its colour, the snowdrops
    Failed to show as usual through the snow.

    The cherry blossoms were not here,
    The ground flowers were still under snow.
    When the sun will come out again,
    There is no way for me to know.

    Yes, I missed the spring this year,
    And for this I must confess, I shed a tear.
    The saddest loss of all, the birds I did not hear.
    But what I missed the most, you were not here.

    I blog on facebook.
    Be well, my friend.

  3. Hi Daisy,

    It’s been a long time. I kinda lost track of my Telus account, and now I’m not really on it.|
    You might remember me from “those days.” We used to correspond.
    How odd. I wrote a poem to you (2027, I think) called Dear Daisy, I missed the Spring this Year.
    i LOST THE POEM TO THE ETHER and could never find it, or recreate it. So now I have recreated A poem.
    It is on my blog, if you care to take a look.

    I am glad you are still “with us” and still writing. Seems you have come a LONG way, my friend.
