Temperature rises
slowly by day
buds on trees
with winds do sway.

Bulbs peeping carefully
from thawing ground
scared to surface
from its earthen mound.

The first signs of squirrels
foraging for food
spring in the air
all is good.

Day by day the heat increases
shrubs start to grow and spread
ponds are clearing fish are swimming
no more the cold do we dread.

Birds are singing,new crops sewn
life seems better this day
bouncing with health, better weather
migrated birds come to stay.

Parks are full of kids playing
Parents watching their child
dogs barking, kites flying
everyone running wild.

Picnics packed, family outings
making the most of the fun
lovers walking hand in hand
under the beaming sun.

Nights are longer, moon is bright
stars twinkle a sight to behold
air is warm, smell of freshness
every day precious as gold.

Bulbs all flowering a treat to see
blankets of colorful delight
lasting for ages left unpicked
truly a fabulous sight.

Spring is near, cannot wait
to pack away the old heavy clothes
no more branches void of leaves
its beautiful what nature betroves.

After a harsh winter friends we are nearing Spring, for some of you Spring is probably here, but in the UK, temperatures usually increase around the end of March start of April, thats when you tens to see life, in warmer weather, peoplke go out, animals return from hibernation and everything around is colorful, as far as I am concerned roll on lol.
