That Wondrous Time

That wondrous time

 

       

GOD's miracle of springtime..,

   spreads slowly cross the plains

Field's once frozen melt away..,

   and only mud remains

Just look around.. and read the sign..,

   while hearing distant song

The sound of birds returning..,

   absent for too long

And in the sky a victory "V'..,

   geese are headed back up north

Squinting there's seen insects..,

   darting back.. and forth

Rabbits.. squirrels they dance about..,

   courting their new love..,

Soon they'll be green.. and new life..,

   all coming from above

GOD's miracle of springtime..,

   spreads slowly cross the plains

Field's once frozen melt away..,

   and only mud remains
