A Warm Welcome


Today Spring embraced me

with a warm breeze,

and I felt her breath as she kissed me

on the cheek

Today Spring raced towards me

with some cool tears,

and I knew she hadn’t forsaken me

for another year.


Spring said  “I bet you’re glad to see me!”

and laughed with the birds

“You know I always come to dance with you”

were her joyous words.

Today Spring and I danced

with the nodding flowers

Reunited at last, we celebrated

Once more she is ours.

(Until summer takes her place)

Yellow violets

Has Spring been to dance with you yet?
