Spring has finally sprung
and in the freezing north
there’s much to be sung
for winters here are not any fun!
Thank God for the sun,
not only in the sky, but in my heart and eye.
As the sun melts the snow
and the seeds start to grow
my inner light flows.
As the sun warms the earth, I feel MY re-birth.
As the birds start to sing
my inner bell rings
“Wake up you sleepy-head.
What are you – dead?”
As the flowers stretch and yawn
and a little green shows on the lawn
I think there’s hope for me yet
Ah spring – a new dawn!
