Ah, the sky! An azure blue!
With full bodied clouds,
of a virginal hue.
A palace for that fiery orb,
that burns oh so bright,
and cannot be ignored.

Ah, the grass! A deep and rich jade!
So ripe and yet tender.
New life in each blade.
Colorful jewels bursting forth,
in the form of blossoms,
East, West, South, and North.

Tree trunks of textured browns,
stand firm and steady,
supporting emerald crowns.
And in their limbs a silvery ring,
as bird in their nests,
joyfully chirp and sing.

And up above in crisp sunlight,
with vibrant wings,
butterflies take flight.
This is the season we call Spring.
A season of beginnings,
with new life in every thing!
