The buds are coming back on the trees
Small fuzzy clothes on the skeletons of winter
Life is coming alive again from its hibernation
It springs alive in my soul
People walk about with bigger smiles
Shedding their layers of winter with their depression
Less clothes, Less sadness, More energy, More activity
The birds sing their excited songs
Happy to find food and friends
Squirrels search for all their hidden treasure
That the melting snow blanket exposes
Dogs look shamefully at everything they left behind
Now being exposed
While cats get the spring crazy down to their bones
Winter is full of wonder
But I think everyone is grateful for new birth
And new opportunities springing forward with life
