Tulips waving, Chic-a-dee's sing
weather warming, Robin takes wing
lazily swaying on our swing
first signs of Spring, first signs of Spring

Crocus open to catch the sun
Hummingbirds return has begun
Freesia scent is second to none
time for some fun, time for some fun

Children's laughter filling the air
gingerly playing without a care
squealing and screeching everywhere
we sit and stare, we sit and stare

Spring is here, we see it first hand
longing to feel our toes in sand
trips to the beach are in demand
life is so grand, life is so grand
