Celebrate Spring

Awake O soul and sing your song aloud

For winter’s done and greener days are here

The brightness of the season now abounds

Breaks cold and freezing spirits into cheer


The carnations in vibrant hues tempt me

So do the daffodils yellow and bright;

With hints of red, the rosebuds strain to sing

To celebrate the seasons’ changing sight


The windows spring wide open. Scenes of green

Revive the numb with chimes of waking call

The weary heart rejoices with the trees

No more to hibernate within four walls


Oh winter, fear not, I am not alone

It's springtime now, and you have brought me home.
