Spring, Wonderful Spring!

by Y. M. Roger

Raise a toast
Party time’s arrived
Spring is here so don’t delay
Come one, come all – celebrate
Hope you brought your smile
You’ll  need  it
Move your feet
Set  your  spirit  free
Don’t worry ‘bout your rhythm 
Let  your  arms  and  hips  gyrate
The trees sway in time
There you are
Choose a song
The  birds  will  join  in
Oh, that chorus will be great
Friends  will  hear  it  ringing out
They’ll know Spring is here
Deep breath now
Spread your arms
Let  Spring  enfold  you
Know her warmth upon your skin
Feel  the  winds  of  her  embrace
Welcome Winter’s end
Raise a toast
