Spring’s Approach

Spring is just beginning to awaken
It’s stretching its limbs and
Whispering to the flowers
Wake up, wake up, wake up

But it’s still a little drowsy
And when the summons arrive
It waves them away with a snowball
And rolls over again

The grass remains brown and rough
Interrupting the landscape with
Jagged edges and hope
That one day they will smile

The trees on the horizon stand
Tall and ready to welcome the birds
When they’ve returned from Disneyworld
And are ready to raise their families

The air waits in hungry anticipation
Though meanwhile gloomy and grey
It sucks the light out of winter
And saves it for spring’s royal ball
