Song Of Spring

by Mario William Vitale

Today I heard a robin sing
Heralding the coming spring
A song of exultation to the sky
An ode to earth's awakening

I saw a willow on the hill
It's branches greening in the sun
And all the earth seemed hushed & still
And sleeping streams began to run

I heard a softly rising breeze
Whispering through the grass
Singing through the still bare trees
Waiting winter's chill to pass

I saw the sun, so bright and warm
Warming the earth after the rain
The buds and leaves, no frost to harm
At least, at last, it's spring again.
