It's Spring!

~

The budding of trees and the buzzing of bees,

The kite held in tow by a string,

The green of the grass and a rope-skipping lass-

These things remind me it's spring!

~

The planting of seeds and the pulling of weeds,

The menacing wasp with its sting,

The storm in the night, the bright flashes of light-

These things remind me it's spring!

~

The lengthening days and sun's brighter rays

And marbles arrayed in a ring,

The sailing of boats and the storing of coats-

These things remind me it's spring!

~

Young fellows with bats and old men chasing hats,

A child soaring high on a swing,

A boy and a pole, fishing worms, water hole-

These things remind me it's spring!

~

The great hand of God manifest in each clod,

The wonder of each growing thing,

The flowers in bloom, rich with fragrant perfulme-

These things remind me it's spring!

~

The bold daffodils and the mockingbirds' trills,

The bright-colored birds on the wing,

God's artwork displayed in a color parade-

These things remind me it's spring!

~

All nature's aglow! 'Tis a wonderful show

Arranged by the heavenly King!

Let all people raise their glad voices in praise

To God the Creator-it's spring!
