Easter Nursery 

Is it just me?
Or are the people who venture forth
to the local nursery 
It’s the Saturday before Easter
and while Jesus is in the grave,
people stream to the local nursery
Older folks know their way
to their favorite flowering Fuschia and
Early Girl tomato.
Parents chase their children
between the budding trees
and water elements.
I only come for one or two
plants, but already my cart
is full of old standards
and an “I’ll try this one” experiment.
It’s the Saturday before Easter.
Jesus is in the grave.
But spring and resurrection are in the air.

We all know it
