The green will appear

Suddenly a bare tree blooms

And we are in awe

At Mother Nature’s timing

Wishing we were as clever

The sirens blaring

Everyone stopped to listen

Bad weather coming

People scattered for cover

Only to learn twas a test

See yourself as free

Feel the excitement of change

Hold fast to your dreams

You will be propelled forward

Life’s what you make it

With ingredients you choose

The blue winter sky

Becoming faint silver grey

Street lamps are brighter

Squirrels and birds find their nests

Clouds part for the moon to shine
