Shy Snowdrops

Beautiful late afternoon sun.  Took the opportunity photograph the snowdrops which are poking through all over the lawn.  Poetry is not my thing, so I looked for something to capture their presence, Melinda’s words are perfect.

Oh snowdrops, I think that
You came in the night,
In only your nighties
And that’s why you’re white.

The world was all sleeping
With never a sound,
You wanted to see it
So came through the ground.

I think that you’re smiling,
But still feel too shy
To lift your sweet faces
To smile at the sky

    Should you have been tunnelling into the lawn to the camera into position?
