This morning I opened my curtains
and felt such a warmth in my heart
For blue sky and sunshine did greet me … again
springtime’s beginning to start.
My daffodil heads are unfolding
my tulips are looking the part.
My spirits are lifted this wonderful day
as springtime’s beginning to start.
I see children playing, hear lawn mowers whirr
whilst families descend on the park.
Hand in hand lovers just happy to stroll
when springtime’s beginning to start.
Wood pigeons calling, blackbirds in song
a fanfare to Nature’s New Year.
So love and live it and breathe in the air
for springtime is finally here.
