A sonnet for an early spring morning.

ALL HAIL THE COMING OF ANOTHER SPRING!

Of yellow bells and daffodils I sing,
their trumpets herald coming warmer days
as fields and forests turn from brown to green
and all the earth will soon be set ablaze.
Now winter's sky so somber and so gray
begrudgingly begins at last to wane,
and snow and sleet reluctantly give way
to gentle springtime' s warm and welcome rain.
The chickadees in small black caps fly free
to spread the word to all both far and wide,
they sing and chirp and dart from tree to tree,
the time is now, come celebrate outside.
All hail the coming of another spring!
All hail the coming of another spring!
