So be this day of Spring
Yellow aflame, hues of delicate pink
Brilliant white ablaze
A palette of color to bloom before me
A soft mist and gentle wind
Songbirds, an orchestra of grace
And too, the golden blush of the Willow
The budding green of the Oak, the Dogwood
The feel of dew laden blades of new grass
All sensibilities touched
Deep sleep and joyful awakening
So be this day of Spring.
