Joy of Sring

by David Whalen
A Spring morning, A warm Breeze, doves cooing softly.  Pollen dusted trees.
A few brave violets.  A red streaked dawn.  A very early robin.  Earthworms in the lawn.
Spring peeper frogs.  Smell of dogwood blossoms,
Nature's petroglyphs in muddy bogs.  Footprints left by possums..
Easter eggs and bonnets, Chocolate rabbits.  Missing ears
Jelly beans and sonnets, Spilled Easter baskets, children tears
Parades, leafy bowers, Lemonades.  Spring showers
Spring mornings.  Warm breezes.  Deep breaths. Allergic sneezes
Smell of Fresh blossoms.  Sound of birds as they sing
Joy of life...Joy of being... Joy of Spring
