I heard the birds sweetly sing
Then I knew it’s almost spring
When nature touches everything
And renewal it begins to bring.
After all the gloomy snow,
Shades of green will start to show.
The sun will soon be all aglow
And tulip bulbs will start to grow.
Feathered friends are on the go,
Returning to a place they know.
How glad I am — it warms my heart
That ’ Ol Man Winter soon will part
And I will see some works of art.
Oh joyous spring, please let it start!
