So, Where's Spring?

Spring, you are a little tease!
You come and go just when you please;
We watch for snow to blow and go,
Say goodbye to winter’s freeze.

Are you here or are you not?
Will it be chilly or get hot?
When shall we plant, and what will grow
In the yard and garden plot?

We love little buds and sprouts,
and greening leaves without a doubt;
So let your bashful beauty show,
Splash your colors all about.

Whisper with your scented breeze,
Congratulate the growing trees;
Display God’s goodness, let all know
How refreshing Spring can be.
