after a long gloomy winter scrapes my nerves raw

the longing for sparkling sunshine begins to gnaw

my skin screams for me to find a few beams

peep holes of blue spark my mountainous dreams

golden rays gracing peaks never seen before

the birds chirping and slurping worms galore

mating calls echo through the air and trees

the fire of love is the warmth in the breeze

for when spring has sprung across the hills

every living thing forgets the forsaken chills

every spring every year the skies again turn blue

rejoicing, celebrating, blessed life begins anew
