Longing For Spring
Once a day and sometimes more
I look out my day dream door
To see if spring is out there yet
I'm really anxious, but mustn't fret.
I see the snow a melting down
and lots of mud and slush around.
I know the grass will surely sprout
and birds and flowers will come about.
But why oh why does it take so long ?
I'm sure the calender can't be wrong.
Sunshine fills my heart with cheer
I wish that spring were really here.
Soon mother nature will sound the alarm
Wake up! , get dressed, turn on your charm.
Winter's gloom has gone its way
It's Spring, It's Spring, Oh Happy Day !
- Edna T. Helberg
