(inspired by Emily Dickinson’s “From Cocoon Forth a Butterfly”)
As winter loosens its chilly grip
and redbud and jonquil blossoms appear
Days grow longer, rainy but warm
and bird songs echo for all to hear.
From beneath their layers of jackets come
homeowners breathing deep the spring
Teasing for weeks till it finally arrives –
a fickle but oh-so-welcome thing!
Bulbs we planted months ago
press up through sleeping garden beds
Promising joy for the eyes to behold
tulips in yellows and pinks and reds.
Clouds may linger and block the sun
but a light spring jacket is all we need
To watch the robins hop to and fro
On fat spring worms they feast and feed.
Like the flowers that herald spring
houses rise up from the thick red clay
Frames and walls, windows and roof
Will be a home one coming day.
Like all those that have come before
each home built by the Windsong team
Is more than just a place to live,
It’s the manifestation of a dream.
Luxurious rooms filled with natural light
bring smiles to their owners’ faces
But the weather beckons them outside
to wide front porches and courtyard spaces.
Active adults share a special secret
realized when they buy a Windsong home:
A life that’s enjoyed, rich and full
includes ample outdoor space to roam.
Neighbors who become good friends,
in each one of our communities;
Spring enjoyed both inside and out…
Welcome to Windsong, Where Life’s A Breeze!
