Think Spring

Print Share
    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!
