Circle Of Life

Faded blue jeans Roaming in bare feet The warmth of spring Following winter’s sweep. Wind in your hair As fresh linens sway A fiery sunset Burning the end of day. Rains soft rhythm Shadowing thunder’s boom Washes away Winter’s icy gloom. Geese serenade Soaring Eagles flight Nature astir From it’s buried plight. Trees budding Ground sprouts green No longer chilled By winter’s scene. Children laugh Animals play Excitement abounds On that first warm day. Signs of spring Fill the sky Nests prepare For babies cry. Doors open Fresh air sweeps in The circle of life Continues to spin.

I can see those fresh linens swaying in the breeze on a welcome spring day, Deborah! How true that the "circle of life" is never more evident than in the spring. Beautiful poem!
