The Miracle of Spring

A robin bustles around the meadow

collecting dried grass for her nest, and

rabbit hustles to construct her burrow,

digging a hidden hole lined with flax.


Tender leaves push through hard soil,

urged upward in a hidden scheme while

rose and raspberry vines start greening,

following nature's mandate unseen.


A verdant haze haloes treetops as buds

appear at the end of every branch, and

flowers emerge enchanting a forest where

yesterday's view only bare wood chanced.
