Blooming Spring

Still Life with Pussy Willows  Vladimir Maximovich Sokolov
Pussy Willow
by Kate L Brown 
Pussy willow wakened 
From her cozy winter nap,
For the frolicking spring breeze, 
On her door would tap.
“It is chilly weather, 
Though the sun feels good;
I will wrap up warmly 
And wear my furry hood.”
Mistress Pussy Willow 
Opened wide her door;
Never had the sunshine 
Seemed so bright before.
Never had the brooklet 
Seemed so full of cheer; 
“Good morning, Pussy Willow, 
Welcome to you, dear.”
Never guest was quainter, 
Than when Pussy came to town,
In her hood of silver gray, 
And tiny coat of brown. 

Happy little children 
Cried with laugh and shout,
“Spring is coming, coming,
Mistress Pussy Willow’s out.”
