At Last….


At last, my Lupines have come along
My Lupineless days are over
And life is like a song
Oh, yeah, at last
The skies above are blue
My heart was wrapped up in Oxalis
The day I planted you
I found a raceme butterflies could cling to
A raceme that I can call my own
I found a Fabaceae to rest my cheek to
A Pea that I couldn’t before grow
Oh, yeah when you grew, I smiled
Oh, and then in spring you came back
And here we are in Indiana
For you are mine
At last

If you couldn’t tell, I’m excited that I’m growing Lupines. I never could before. I’ll be in the forum, you can tell me what a dork I am in there.
