I’ll rest in the winter but always be there
Christine Sinclair (2nd November 1946 – 13th February 2009)
A deep appreciation of nature and all her glory is a recurring theme throughout Christine’s poems. Born in Glasgow in 1946, she was inspired to write poetry after listening to a recital of William Wordsworth’s ‘The Daffodils’ at school. Christine regularly wrote humorous and poignant poems for family and friends on special occasions – demonstrating her fantastic talents. We are sure that the following poem entitled ‘The Promise of Spring‘ will help to brighten up your day and put a smile on your face – just as Christine would have wanted.
The Promise of Spring
I hold my head so high and proud
I feel much happier in a crowd
I toss my head in the gentle breeze
Enjoy my beauty, I want to please
My colour brings the promise of spring
I know I am a beautiful thing
Please treat me gently or I might break
And enjoy the beauty my friends and I make
Just love and respect me and hold me dear
And I will visit you every year
I'll rest in winter but always be there
Ready to please you if for me, you'll care
Whenever you see me you'll feel such a thrill
You know me so well I'm your sweet daffodil
Christine Sinclair, Glasgow
