It’s a beautiful time, it’s spring, it’s May
Warm wind has blown the clouds away.
Mother Nature shows her gift
the word to paint, the moods to lift.
Her meadows and heathens, oh we are keen
seeing them radiate in healthiest green;
sometimes we see, like their lilac head cower
the delicate bloom of a cuckoo-flower.
Nature reflects the sunbeam’s mellow
by coloring the daffodil in most luscious yellow.
Tulips are blooming in pink, red and white
in sunshine, and purple it’s a beautiful sight!
The pink and white lyre-flower catches our eye
Forget-me-not and lilies-of-the-valley seem to bloom shy.
The strong red of the corn poppy, it seems to sing
while there are so many colors of peony dancing the swing.
Nature provides us with the most beautiful range
of colors to enjoy, to impress, to accept, but not change.
It’s spring time, energy, happiness, vivid life and a smile
given by nature, with talent, with grace, and most, with style.
