Spring Is Here!
Beside the trodden path, there lay a bush
of tiny flowers. Insects buzz round them
to welcome spring, a world of blooms. A thrush
flies close by, dainty like a sparkling gem.
A violet near the bush appears today,
delights the wilderness with subtle hues.
Soon little boys and girls will come this way
to pick wild berries, flolic on the dews.
Wee swallows fly to nests they left last year.
They weave in flight and fill the sky with sound.
The earth is turned to green. Yes, spring is here
and winter's long forgotten ! It's her round.
The sun is rising calm and bright above
the oak tree, beaming down the world with love.
