Suddenly it's Spring

'When the snows melt
and winter goes
it's suddenly spring.

The sun wakes up
and shakes itself.
The sky
is patched with blue
and early in the morning
while the dew
is fresh on the ground
all around
on trees and house-tops
the birds begin
their busy dizzy excited songs.

They sing
their hearts out
because of the spring.'

Suddenly it's Spring by Peggy Blakeley, illustrated by Bernadette Parmentier
