I’m really quite excited here this avo,
I caught it in the air, I really did!
A whiff, although there’s ice still on the pavements,
A little bit of zing that blew my lid!
I was walking with my dog
(that’s twice today, some other bugger’s turn later),
And he was sniffing round as all dogs do,
I sniffed a bit myself, I couldn’t help it
And that’s when I really, really knew
That Spring is just around the corner,
I can feel it in my waatter, as we say,
And it really, really doesn’t matter
If Winter loiters round a few more days (ok, weeks!)
I can tell, as well, because I feel a surging
In my levels of energy and such,
A driving to be doing and Spring-cleaning,
Though I really don’t like the latter very much.
But something’s set my soul to stirring,
My feet are itching, hands as well, to move,
My brain’s on overdrive with plans and whatnots,
And my heart is beating faster just to prove
That life’s a gas when Spring is swift approaching
And I’m running fast to meet her as she comes,
I’m high as kite at smell and sight sensations
And shaking off the wintry and doldrums.
I’m really quite incredibly elated,
I’m talking like a train that’s high on speed,
No ice or snow on scan can diminish what I plan
Now Spring is scented, Spring’s my aching need.
