I WISH YOU SPRING...by b. Malin
HEY SPRING, WHERE ARE YOU?
I wrote this piece a few years back. I would like to dedicate it to this Crazy Winter...And my friends up North... Whom I wish lots of Sunshine to melt the Snow, and a Beautiful early Spring...
Hey Spring, where are you?
I know that you're under that blanket of Snow...
Somewhere nestled deep,
While we walk around,
In a constant state of CHILL.
Most of us have learned to live with the Cold.
But "I" personally DESPISE it!
As one would, their worst enemy.
I envy those people who don't feel the cold...
Their skin has a HEALTHY GLOW.
While mine just gets CHAPPED AND RED,
And gives me the urge to stay in BED.
But just when I think, I've had enough...
That I can't take it anymore,
Glorious Spring...A time of rebirth...
And I come to life, once again.
I am reborn!
I have made it through.
The air around me smells so fresh, so new.
I feel Happy, for the first time in months.
I look up at the sky...
That big beautiful sky,
And watch birds of many colors flying by.
