First Day of Spring 2015

It’s the first day of Spring

and it’s snowing outside.

Off in the distance,

a train rumbles by,

sounding a whistle of sighs.

 

Little birds, dropping

from snow-covered trees,

fly low to the ground,

startled by what they have found.

 

And the far-off train

still rumbles and sighs,

the sound carried

by the cold, still air.

 

 

It’s the first day of Spring

and it’s snowing outside.

And the solar eclipse

has already passed by.

 

As I sit on the floor,

my girl Roxie’s at my side;

her paw rests gently

on my outstretched hand,

and she fills it with kisses.

 

And as the sound of the train

still echoes, fading

into the cold, still air,

I count my blessings.

 

I am alive.

Praise Heaven,

I am alive.
