you’ve been so slow to come

are you reticent or just lazy?

what’s to be done?


in like a lion

out like a lamb

you’ve been roaring and bullying far too long

lion, get on your way, be gone!



signs of hope and 

new beginnings 

longer days and fresher leanings


spring forward 

like a doe leaping

a new lamb bleating

it’s time for a rest from winter’s ruthless beatings



change your costume

from predator to prey

bring us sweet scents and warm breezes today
