Budding trees burst with joy
As the day awakens to the rising sun;
Leaves pop open on each tender branch
Nature’s work has just begun.
A warm breeze flows from the wind
As it gently touches the tree;
A song is heard from the moving leaves
Softly swaying with a rhythmic glee.
Gentle rain falls from the sky
Washing away the dust in the air;
Drops of dew accumulate upon each leaf
Nourishment that provides its care.
As the fog begins to lift and fade away
The wind sends a stronger breeze;
Sun shines brightly as the clouds drift apart
Sending warmth to the budding trees.
These daffodils pop up from the earth
To welcome the warmth of the sun;
Tis an early sign from nature
That warmer days are yet to come.
Bright yellow blossoms greet the eye
Upon their long sturdy green stems;
Flowering bulbs of the Spring season
Oh how we always welcome them.
Cut a few to bring indoors and admire
What a cheerful sight to see;
Yellow glowing colors stand out
Providing nature’s beauty to thee.
A cheerful message these flowers send
That this day is as precious as the next;
A moment of time not to go unnoticed
For life is not meant to be so complex.
Sign of Spring
This blade of green grass
Tis a sure sign of Spring;
Rising from the cold earth
Look what it will bring.
A gift of hope
Warmer days are yet to come;
Hiding beside winter’s kill
Hurray! Spring has just begun.
Life awakens as daylight increases
From the darkness of former days;
Nature’s garden is brewing
From the energy of the sun’s rays.
A new beginning lies ahead
Just waiting to be discovered;
In this transition of the seasons
Are moments waiting to be uncovered.
The Beauty of a Flower
Gaze your eyes upon this simple beauty
Notice the intricate design of the flower;
Stay focused on this present moment
Tis the most beautiful creation of the hour.
So delicate in color and vibrant with life
It hangs on to the stem with trust;
The plant will not die and wilt away
Nor will this flower curl up into dust.
Spring is the season plants vibrantly grow
Just to produce this colorful show;
Embrace the scene presented before you
Admire all the beautiful colors that glow.
Tis Gods’ gift of life wrapped in a present
Blessed are you to receive on this day;
Never deny that moment from Him
As you give thanks and pray.
Trust that Spring will soon be here
The cold days too shall pass;
As the sun shines higher in the sky
Its rays begin to nurture the grass.
Birds sing joyfully each morning of the day
Listen to their songs of fate;
Instinct tells the birds to trust
As they seek to find this year’s mate.
Snow gradually melts away
Providing moisture to the ground;
Trust those bulbs planted months ago
Will rise again to form a beautiful mound.
Buds form on the branch of the tree
Hanging gracefully as the limb sways;
Trust that they will transform to leaves
Providing shade from the sun on upcoming days.
A warm breeze falls upon the face
And you feel the spring air flow;
Trust that in the days to come
Nature’s picture of color will unfold.
Yes, Spring is coming any day now
We seek its sign each year;
For it is a rebirth of our spirit
Trust that it will soon be here.

Brings signs that Spring is near;
A hope to end the winter season

To a new and promising day that’s free.
Expecting beauty for this day
But must challenge what that shall be;

They bring happiness to my heart;
Along this path I seem to walk
My mind just seems to spark.
