The 3rd month of the year is here and that
means Spring must be right around the corner.
Here in our part of the world, the last of the grimy, sooty remnants of snow are almost gone.
The sun peeps out more often and stays with us longer.
The air seems so warm and breezes so soft and fresh.
For now the gardens remain soggy, full
of tangled brambles and broken branches.
Ah but soon the world will burst forth with
color and the lovely scents of the season.
Uh huh, Spring is right around the corner.
Ssh...can you hear it? It's coming, gently,
on the wings of those sweetly chirping robins.
It's almost here...
