Spring? Was that you peeking through my curtains this morning? I started to worry that you weren’t coming. It’s been so long…oh how I’ve missed you.
When my alarm jolted me up from a deep sleep, I was so surprised to see my red curtains glowing. “Did I oversleep?” I worried, and checked my clock. 7:30 on the dot.
Leaping from my bed I ran to the window. I peeked outside in disbelief. The sun had risen. The light had changed. Spring, you surprised me, snuck up on me when I least expected you. I thought Winter might continue perpetually.
With the fresh feeling of a new year beginning, I started my day optimistically. The dreary Winter days are now behind me. Soon I can say goodbye to my heavy winter coat. Flowers will bloom and freckles will decorate my face. I will breath sweet warm air again.
Goodbye Winter winds, harsh cold and short dark days. My dear Spring is coming soon. And just in time. I might not have made it much longer.
