Coming spring drips and
all growth becomes riddled with
desire for sun's warmth,
ridden with need for having more.
Freshly risen, shy green
gets liquid-addiction, an invisible
draw makes sward
swoon for regular fixes of water.
The four seasons born
From Earth’s rotating axis gears
Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall
The north and south hemispheres
After a long cold Winter
I crave the warmth of Spring
The ground being soft again
And colorful birds that sing
Spring - the year's imp
Delights in peeking from the ground
And shyly showing its new garments
Their purples and yellow and pinks
SPRING...I’m pleased to inform you that WINTER has been evicted. I’m ready to welcome you in. Come as soon as you can. Don’t forget to bring along the birds, the butterflies, and flowers galore. Just a few of my favorite things.
