Has Spring Arrived For Me
Has Spring arrived in my garden?
Has the sun burst into my room all of a sudden
and made me shiver with joy!
I witness the Tulip bulbs revealing their breathtaking outfits - first sign of Spring!
I witness the brown bark of my Willow Tree rapidly changing its colour.
Do I spot a squirrel scurrying, through my garden,
in a hurried pace? Then definitely it's Spring!
Everything and everyone tells me Spring is
not far. But why in me I don't feel the ebullient breeze of warm sun?
I don't sense the sun because you are not
with me! The birds are not tweeting yet,
the air is not smelling fragrant yet,
my heart is not twirling yet in expectation,
although I pine for - colourful buds, glossy green
grass, honey-bees buzzing,
Are you going to keep me waiting?
