I'm ready, are you?

The Voice of Spring
by Mary Howitt
"I am coming, I am coming!
Hark! the honey bee is humming;
See, the lark is soaring highIn the blue and sunny sky,
And the gnats are on the wing
Wheeling round in airy ring.

Listen! New-born lambs are bleating,
And the cawing rooks are meeting
In the elms--a noisy crowd.
All the birds are singing loud,
And the first white butterfly
In the sunshine dances by.

Look around you, look around!
Flowers in all the fields abound,
Every running stream is bright,
All the orchard trees are white,
And each small and waving shoot
Promises sweet autumn fruit."

I don't know about the rest of you

but I am ready for this event.

"Come forth dear,

and gentle Springtime!"

Joyce,
I AM SO READY I can't tell you! The weather here will be moderating in a day or so but we just just had temperatures that belonged to Alaska, New Jersey this past weekend! Hope you are feeling better this week!

Hugs and Blessings,
Jean

Hello Joyce: I think you will see it long before us - it was snowing at my house this morning but that really gets going in April! I enjoyed my visit here!
