African tulips

The last of the year’s African tulips

Are fast fading from the trees,

As winter takes them in their grip;

They’ll be back again next year –

Big, bright, beautiful orange flames –

When the weather is crisp and clear;

One of nature’s many reminders

That life does go on,

No matter what.
