Why do stars in the night shine so bright?
Why does the sun in the sky give us light?
Why do the buds appear and push up in the snow?
Well, I don’t know, but they are a welcome sight.
It gladdens my heart to see hints of spring.
Buds on trees and limbs turning green.
Some plants survived winter snows,
protected from the harsh cold. Nature
beckons the birdsong once more.
The promise of what is to come, the hope.
Now at peace with the world, I rejoice
and give thanks for verdant green
abounding our plot of land. It
is good to be alive, to regard such
delights. Wonder and awe fill me.
So this is spring’s promise and delight.
No clouds in the blue sky.
Now I know why I feel the sights
differently today. Wiser and happier.
Now I understand why.
