Assuaging that winter-borne thirst

It's Spring,
and the busy daffodils
with their small capable hands
rise early, to milk the new sun
and wave the scent of hyacinths
into the garden breeze
so passers-by --
lured to a stop by this sweet perfume --
will drink in the bright lime greens
with their winter-parched eyes.
