From out her swaddling clothes of frost and icy mist,
Spring breaks forth, eager to bestow – on mother earth – a loving kiss.
Across the thawing acres, she waves her magic wand:
her healing hand,
and brings a gradual change upon the earth-bound land.
Fragile virgin snowdrops are the first to yield –
as a blue-haze scene shimmers bright from yonder wood and field.
Bold Narcissi show themselves and golden Daffodil,
while cuckoo marks the wondrous time high upon the hill.
