The Glory of Spring
The snow melts away,
Revealing lush, green grass,
Making a soft playground for critters to play.
White and yellow daffodils bud and then bloom;
They dot the landscape with colors of cheer,
They take away Winter's white and gray gloom.
Fuzzy caterpillars burst forth into thousands of butterflies;
They delight in their wings and display their outfits of color;
It's a beautiful sight as they and Spring harmonize.
Streams that once were solid ice begin to freely flow,
To endow life to each blade of grass, tree and flower;
Every river, lake, and burbling brook puts on quite a show.
Every living thing is renewed and becomes revived;
It was like Winter never came and laid her white earth,
When Spring and the life she brings have finally arrived.
