Hurry Hurry Spring

Is it spring yet
pestered the daffodils
in shades of yellow delight.

Not yet sighed the crocus
but what a sight you make
faces so bold and bright.

Is it spring
Whispered new grasses
in pale shades of green

Seems each year like
waking to a dream
smelling so clean.

Is it spring
Yelled each impatient tree
I am beginning to bud happily.

Be patient spring whispered
our time will come
spring is a special time for laughter and fun.

I'll let you know just when
So hush now!
In a few more days, spring will have sprung!

Far south the lift,
