Winter is not yet gone – but now
The birds are carolling from the bough.
And the mist has rolled away
Leaving more beautiful the day.
The sun is out – O come with me
To look upon the wattle tree!
The wattle tree is part of my childhood. It is part of my adulthood. It is part of my winters. To see this bright yellow fluff of flower is a treat for the eye and the soul. It is a light on the cold days. It is sprinkled in front yards. It is by the side of the road. It is part of the bush. When we travel, we see the beauty of the world. When we return home, we see the beauty that is before us. The wattle tree is one of the many things I see clearly now that I have returned home. It says ‘Welcome home!. We are glad you are back”
