All through the barren winter
I have waited for this day,
To see the signs of springtime
With its colours on display,
For all the purple crocuses
And snowdrops now in bloom,
Have brought a joy into my heart
And lifted winter's gloom.
To see the golden daffodils
Now bursting into flower,
And blossoms catch the morning breeze
Upon the cherry bower,
The meadows filled with daisies
And the hawthorn draped in white,
As through the skies the swallows soar
So beautiful their sight.
The days are growing longer now
The air is warmer too,
Now soon the threat of snow will pass
And frosts will melt to dew,
As bluebells spread so far and wide
Across the woodland floor,
I know that spring has come at last
And winter is no more.
