Spring Fever

    “Spring Fever,” Ensign, Apr. 1972, 32

    Spring Fever

    It’s hard to keep spring

    Out of mind and feeling.

    Get back to your work, thoughts!

    Don’t go reeling

    This way and that

    From one delight to another.

    Each crocus will keep;

    The good earth mother

    Will bring forth more beauties

    As days go by.

    You can’t know them all,

    So don’t try.

    Get back to your work, thoughts.

    Go back—yes, but oh—

    How can spring wear

    Such a misty glow?
