Spring Song

Storms of lightning, rain, and thunder
Bring forth spring in all its wonder.
Snowflakes gone, except for these –
Flowers wafting in the breeze.
Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
Redbud and dogwood, if you please.
Twin squirrels chase each other’s tail.
Daffodils push up without fail.
Bluets pop up here and there,
Tiny blossoms with faces fair.
Weeds grow beside the door.
Those, I will just ignore.
Anole runs across the rail.
Wonder what happened to his tail?
No clock alarm, just spring bird’s song,
Calling the mate he’ll find ere long
I’m ready for spring, if you please,
Even the pollen that makes me sneeze.
