It’s Spring
    Footnotes

    “It’s Spring,” Friend, Mar. 1989, 42

    It’s Spring

    The seeds are growing into plants,

    And buds are opening wide

    To show the flower ruffles

    That are hidden down inside

    The tight wrappings on each tree;

    And almost everywhere

    There’s a happy, tingling feeling

    That’s flitting through the air.

    The sunshine is bright yellow,

    And the birds can’t wait to sing.

    Oh, all the earth is just so glad

    That finally it’s spring!
