A CUP OF SPRING

Oh, who will have a cup of Spring --
that reviving time of year
when winter snow and frigid climes
give way to warmth and cheer?

The cold dead earth
sprouts things anew --
those bursting buds upon the tree
with leaves of greening hue!

Soft sunshine warms the rousing days,
so gentle, yet alive,
and everything that was asleep
wakes up and starts to thrive.

The perfumed blossoms in the air
call noses to respond,
and in the early hours of morn
dew glistens on the frond.

The lilting songs of birds entice
the heart to smile with glee.
With every note they seem to waltz
from tree to verdant tree.

So come and drink a cup of Spring;
awake to sheer delight!
The dismal, dreary winter days
are trumped by Spring's soft light.
