Grace B. Wheeldon (Grace B. Wait)
ďA gentle wind whispers
it carries a birdís spring song.
Time has come to tend the garden,
A delicate April rain will help it along.
Her face basks in the morning sun,
handís labor nurturing the earth.
Buds rise from the soil and petals eloquently unfurl,
Her love of their bloom, having given them birth.Ē
