Spring Run-off

Written by: Phyllis Babcock

Fast flowing rivers in spring
Diverting, shooting around rocks
Eroding banks along the shore line
Water moves, furious and icy cold
Rushing along at a hurried pace
Budding trees, cling to surrounding banks
Once barren, new life has sprung
New sprinkling of color amongst shades of green
Regrowth, regeneration, a new season arrives.
