POEM: Spring

The Ides of March have been and past

Which means that Spring is coming fast!

The signs of Spring are creeping in 

Birds return and happily sing!

Crocus, daffodils emerge, their beauty to display

And tulips dance in colorful array!

Trees are budding and soon will be 

Providing shade for all for free!

Young animals cavort in glee

Putting on a show for you and me!

The sun shines on the fallow land

Waiting for the farmers hand

To turn it into fields of green

As corn and soybeans reign supreme!

And each year the good Lord brings

All these lovely signs of Spring!
