	The sun is brighter.

	The air is warmer.

	The grass is turning green
	And tiny buds can now be seen.

	Rising from
	A long winter's sleep,
	We turn to ebullient thoughts
	Of the coming spring.

	A time to reflect
	Upon springs of yesterday.
	A time to dream of
	Springs of tomorrow.

	  Spring - the anticipation
	Of life anew.

	  Spring - the realization
	Of life's enigma.
