Gently strengthening spring sun
Asserts itself, boldening balm
Daffodil yellow rays coax relaxation
Weave protective filaments of warmth
Drape dappled fronds of healing
Upon winter’s starved countenance.
Windbursts swirl, frollic
Lion cubs tussling playfully
Rustle autumns’ leafy detritus
Echoing swan song, year departed
Dressing the world anew.
