Member Monday: Silent Rejoicing by Linda Boyden

Welcome back to Member Monday!  It’s my pleasure to share a beautiful piece by author and storyteller, Linda Boyden.  Linda’s celebrating National Poetry Month by writing a poem a day.  This particular poem was inspired by the line ” like flowers silently rejoicing” from Peter S. Beagle’s “The Last Unicorn”.

Silent Rejoicing

Dandelions explode into yellow.
Bright cheery faces bloom
like the teardrops of the Sun
as she blesses,
caresses the morning.
Gardeners fuss and kill, but still,
countless blossoms
silently rejoice
the presence of spring.
