The eastern sky is streaked with gold
Above the mountaintops behold
Spring arising;

Branches stretching toward the sun
Winter’s frost at last undone
Buds awaken;

In the field a cunning fox
Welcomes vernal equinox
Field mice scamper;

Robins grace the garden gate
For their breakfast worms they wait
Gently preening;

A Crocus in the flowerbed
Slowly lifts her sleepy head
Greets the morning;

And I am finally waking up
With java in my favorite cup
Yawning deeply;

Time to clear the cobwebs out
That’s what springtime’s all about
Life is blooming.
