Softly Into Spring

Spring calls softly from the darkness
She bathes the land in light

To lure us from our slumber
At the end of Winter's night

It's in the whisper of the wind
Her perfume scents the air

Colours appear overnight
Full of dash and dare

Hot and cold play hide and seek
In league with sun and shade

The flowers carry on as planned
Their costumes have been made

Leaves unfurl and petals twirl
Birds trill their serenade

No one can resist the lure
Of a Spring parade

What started as a whisper
Soon becomes a roar

The flowers dance, the music plays
A Spring song I adore.
