“I touch your hands

And my heart goes strong,

Like a pair of birds

That burst with song.”


Rodgers & Hammerstein,

Younger Than Springtime



We may be getter a bit older now

But in springtime it never feels that way

I love watching our world come alive once again

With you by my side on these glorious spring days


The birds are all returning now

To our tiny backyard Paradise

And the sight of fresh new green blossoms

Is truly reflected in your lovely spring eyes


The spring air is so very crisp and clean

And I marvel as I sit here with you and stare

Everything around us is now scented with lilac

Its essence caresses your lovely wind swept hair


And like each and every spring since we met

You’ve somehow managed to renew my world

And very contentedly I now perch here with you

Watching all of this magnificent new life unfurl


You and I have truly bonded gloriously

Like two devoted aging birds of a feather

And I hope and pray that we can perch here together

Through many more years of this lovely spring weather



“Younger than springtime, are you
Softer than starlight are you

Gayer than laughter are you
Sweeter than music are you
Angel and lover

Heaven and earth
Are you to me”



©2005, Ed Kostro
