    ON THE FIRST DAY OF SPRING




    A 5 am call from a pigeon

    With throaty song wakes me to dawn.

    Fresh-cut grass refreshes my senses

    Inspires my life to go on.




    Breakfast al fresco makes its debut

    My love sitting right by my side:

    We contemplate life ever changing

    And together how we take its ride.




    The sun makes its way to its zenith:

    We hold hands and gather our thoughts

    And walk through the natural beauty

    That earth has to us made from nought.




    The moon peaks through a red horizon

    Introducing a welcome breeze.

    Though evening sky turns our path rusty

    It beckons through wild waving trees.




    A sudden rain threatens our journey

    Wild thorns are spread across our way.

    So we turn to home as dark rises

    Yet ponder a beautiful day.




    Sleep threatens to come to me sooner

    Than expected but it can't bring

    More pleasant beginnings or endings

    Than this wondrous first day of Spring.
