A heady scent which none can compare.
In colours red, yellow and pink,
a rainbow that I deign to drink.
Soft and bright upon my eyes
touching soul, I do surmise
Smoothing ruffles left from dull
winter doldrums swept clean and full.
Ah, sweet Spring is on the rise
along with life's new enterprises
I dream a dream of new love found
and awaken feeling its embrace profound.
Smiles and sunshine fill me up
enough to sate an old wound's crux
And grief is left in winter's wake
to remind us of the season's slake.
I shall not dwell in that cold house
feeding a sorrow I do espouse
For I now stand upon my feet
facing a life that I do entreat
with the smell of fresh flowers
in an air that empowers
a new colourful life begins
and is surrounded by nature's grins.
Now I hold pure blessings to Spring
in all of its worth and all that it brings
Naked I come and offer my soul
and prostrate give thanks for a long journey's toll
