Up she stood, threw off her Hood
And stretched and reached for the Sky
Legs she shook, deep breath she took
And let out a Winter sigh
She said Hello to a World aglow
In a shining, Springy light
For her, a sparkling clear blue Sky
Made everything feel Right
Feeling happy and a little sappy
She picked the Springtime flowers
Warming her voice, having no choice
But to enjoy the Springtime hours
She sang unto Spring, the little thing
The Sunshine shone more brightly
Bringing heat for a Summer's treat
Making her feel quite Spritely!
She loved to play and sing all Day
Her happy and Summery song
So much so, that by Fall, you know,
She could sleep all Winter long.
Happy [early] Spring!
(Imbolc, to some!) <3
