As spring awakens nature from her winter's sleep
so does she with our souls, a rendezvous keep
and moves a winter weary soul to sing
a song of gladness welcoming the spring.
The poets too bow to an urge to write
a poem holding all of spring's delight
as if mere words could picture or portray
the soft illusive newness of a warm spring day.
Ah! one could search the whole wide world in vain
and never find such loveliness again
for what could we compare on land or sea
to sight and sound of spring's sweet mystery.
