Spring Showers

Written by: Jennifer Marie Oliver

Do spring showers really bring May flowers
Or does something else make them grow
Is it the snow that seeps through the ground
Renewing and cleansing their toes

Is it the sunshine that sends down it's warmth
To waken the plants as the sleep
Or the dry decay that freshly fertilizes
The soggy soil of spring.

I wonder why I question the showers 
As being the reason they grow
Maybe it's the wiggly worms that the water releases
That break up the earth beneath
