The sun sends light down to the Earth
to show the world that it is worth
the warmth, the sunbeams and the song
of Nature pure, it can’t be wrong.
When the ground it thirsts for something wet
if rain it needs, that’s what it will get.
Darkest clouds clot up there in the sky
The relief the dry ground feels like a sigh.
And still very soon after pouring rain
The world is bright and beams again.
The baby starlings scream for food
other birds as well, they feed their brood.
At night you hear the barn owls do
demand to eat, they’re hungry too.
Baby foxes play around, while Momma hunts
and the baby deer won’t make a sound.
Listen to nature and you can hear its song
when birds are racing all along.
Singing, twittering, and complaint
they live their life without constraint.
The world is old but in spring it will
renew itself with master skill.
Give birth, grow up and paint with ploy
colorful pictures for our joy.
Enjoy the spring, enjoy the stance
whistle, sing and also dance.
Soon enough the birds will fly.
And the Earth will once more getting dry.
