"SPRING COLORS & RAINBOWS"
I look out my window because I hear a sound
Oh how lovely, rain is coming down!
I put down my book
And run outside.
I stand on a boulde
And let the rain fall on my shoulders.
A few days later
As I go outside
I see a splash of color
From the corner of my eye.
I turn to look
And to my surprise
Green shoots are sprouting
They are starting to show
Everywhere, things are starting to grow.
And then I know.
Spring is here.
Strike up the music!
Light the bonfire
It’s time to celebrate
All the spring flowers!
Blue and red
With orange thrown in
I even see yellow poking in
I hop in my car, pop it into gear.
To go look about, with sudden spring cheer
Storm clouds are coming
I start to see
Yey! More spring colors! I think with glee.
I pull off unto the shoulder
Of the side of the road.
And right on cue
Pops suddenly into view.
And as I look to see where it ends
I start to laugh, and then I grin.
For look and see
Just where my tale ends.
Thank you, dearest Mia, for this deliciously refreshing poem... it's really a treasure to have!!
