Front and Back

Front and Back

The azaleas along the front of our house

Are in full bloom.

Bright red, they go by the name of

Mother’s Day.

They were there when we moved in

Nearly 31 years ago and have bloomed

Most years.

In the back of our house

Some wild azaleas without a name

(As far as I know) grow in the back

Of our house. They are pink and white

And came from the woods behind my parents’ house.

My mother planted them there and

I think it right that in the front

Of our house

It is Mother’s Day

And in back

I am reminded of so many

Mother’s Days

As well.
