Once a Year

The Speed of NowPoetry

Winter has melted away
It rains more and more each day
With the rain comes green flowers

The flowers and the trees grow now that there’s no more snow
The kids all go outside and watch the blossoms grow
Kids are all happy the sun is shining and that it’s warming up

No more hiding in the cold old house
For the sun is out
Enjoy spring, it only happens once a year
