Signs Of Spring
Forsythia in yellow bud,
Birdsong in the early dawning,
And then one morning
Waking up to see again,
Daylight through the window pane.
On tables and on windowsills
We place a vase of daffodils,
And gardeners come out in strength
To prune some shrubs and mend the fence.
Halfway through March and hopes are high
‘Til one day there’s a leaden sky,
With bitter wind and drifting sleet,
We shiver and turn up the heat.
While hungry birds on tree and shed
Wait eagerly for nuts or bread.
But soon the bulbs awake and show
Their green shoots as they start to grow.
Now it’s time to remove the weeds
To make space for new plants and seeds
And from the hardened winter earth
We see spring’s bountiful re-
Such a miracle, just look around
There’s so much beauty to be found
