Springtime--By Phyllis Babcock--Canada


The mist dissipates no longer shades of white
 As sun breaks through with lemon light
Shadows begin to blur and shimmer
As a new day overtakes the dawn
The drab colorless landscape regains color
Another season awakens from its slumber
Bringing forth new growth of spring
After the harshness of winter
Nature continues to flourish
It's balance highly maintained.

Phyllis Babcock was born in Saskatchewan, Canada in 1951 and currently resides in Regina with her husband. She has been blessed with two wonderful sons and daughter-in-laws.
