Mom wrote this as a tribute to Spring

Have you noticed the lilacs are in bud and the pear blossoms are waning? That the birds have found their mates and are in splendid song? Have you noticed that last year's flowers have borne this year's seedlings which are peering through the warm, soft earth? That the grass is lush and green from winter's snow and the trees are bursting with their newborn buds to make tomorrow's cool, green shade from summer's torrid sun?

How much you have missed if these things have escaped you!

Wake up, look up and feel the exuberance which is Spring!!
