Springtime

Written by: Margaret Okubo

Tiny buds, petals sweet
 Little hands pluck and tweak 
Squirrels busy one more time
Gathering  acorns  in record time

Wildlife a-plenty with drowsy eyes
yawn and stretch in sunshine bright
On stiff new legs deer trip and fall
Cute and  dear babies all

Green and yellow pink and red
Colorful rugs on hillsides spread
A fresh new dawn the earth reborn
A blessing indeed oh glorious morn

Such beauty so special so bright
Is to look at the world through
innocent eyes wide with wonder and dewy bright  
 As sunbeams dance in dazzling light
