Think Spring

    Winter is over. The weeds know the way

    Of seasons changing. Their green sprouts say,

    “Put up the winter things. Think spring!

    See, we are sprouting—ready to swing

    Up into sunshine and clean, sweet air.

    Look! Look! Spring’s everywhere!”

    Spring’s everywhere. It’s true! It’s true!

    Little new buds creep into view.

    Cracks in the sidewalks are showing green

    Where weeds find space to push between

    The rocky sides. And sunbeams dance

    Among the green sprouts! Just let your glance

    Sweep over earth and you’ll agree

    That winter’s gone, and spring is free!
