Bridal Wreath

Poems From Psalms And Nature

Ellen Grace Olinger – June 2017

My mother loved the bridal wreath bushes in bloom.  She did not drive, and I learned when I was in high school.  She taught at UW-Milwaukee.  Sometimes I drove there after school, and I can picture her waiting for me.  I remember what she saw, and the yard at home.  We planted this bush in our yard.  Some of the bridal wreath bushes in our area are as large as the old lilacs.

We’ve had a lot of rain, and farmers are busy planting their fields.  There are tiny corn plants in some fields.
