Winter's gone, all the frost and
snowmelt flowing into local streams.
Sun's warmth shines in reverie upon May's
buds, bursting into youthful spring dreams.
Park and valleys are green, grassy, lush
refreshing rain cascades to nourish.
Array of daisies, daffodils, and tulips
are mid-high, dance in breezes, and flourish.
Robins and sparrows have nests to tend,
their young, ready to leave, scout.
Beneath eaves of safety from harm,
fledglings try their wings, fly out.
As clear streams run over mossy stone,
butterflies, bumble-bees scatter on land.
Crickets chirp under fresh-scented peonies,
and spring's melody of rebirth blooms grand.
