She creeps under your door to wake you
with the calming sounds of small birds and the smell of sweet lilies.
She greets your heavy eyelids with a warm baby-blue sky,
clouds scattered every foot.
As you step outside onto the dewy grass and spring welcomes you
with her loving arms, you begin to forget the sharp cold that came before
and you secom to her warmth.
