J Todd Underhill - One Poem

Looking Toward Spring

With each passing day we’re closer to spring,
And much warmer days for us to enjoy.
Lessening the cold grip of winter’s sting,
Old Man Jack Frost can certainly annoy.

New buds bursting forth on all of the trees,
Each day continually growing warm.
Jasmine and Lilac blow upon the breeze,
Rain instead of snow falling from each storm.

And the world once more becomes born anew,
Emerging with pride from winter’s cocoon.
With each blooming flower gracing our view,
I think to myself that it’s none too soon.

Spring is the season I look to, I find;
To keep my heart from becoming snow blind.
