Fairy Tale of Spring

 "  Spring, the sweet and winsome beauty,
   She the coy, the wayward, playful,

Loving, tender-hearted maiden;
Charming as a dream of childhood,

With a smile upon her young face,
And a love-light in her blue eye,

And a grace in every movement,
Trips along o'er barren landscapes,

Singing sweetly, singing gayly:
"I am coming, I am coming,

Look up, Nature, oh, be joyful!
I will bring the sunshine to you,

I will bring you pleasant showers,
Balmy zephyrs, birds, and flowers.

Thus the gentle, winsome beauty,
She, the Queen of all the seasons,

Yearly comes to Earth, and scatters
Smiles and blessings all around her.  "

                      - R. I. McMechan (Poems and Songs, 1877)

Today I am joining in on the fun over at Beverly's "Pink Saturday" Party.
