Just When

Just when I thought there was a chance,
Spring might have lost her way...
She huffed and puffed, and blew right in,
Announcing she would stay.
Just when I was so very tired,
Of winter and its' cold...
Spring arrived with a flourish,
Brought colors bright and bold.
Trees that shivered for long months,
Because their limbs were bare...
Now nudged by sun to show off,
The foliage they will wear.
Spring carried along with her,
All things that I had missed...
Green leaves and splashy flowers,
Earth warm like its' been kissed.
I hear the birds that have returned,
Each with their own sweet song...
I realize how much I've missed
Those birds while they were gone.
I love the feel of green grass,
Like carpet 'neath my feet...
It's thirst just quenched by shower,
And warmed by sun's bright heat.
I'll enjoy each spring all I can,
Till she is forced to leave...
When summer moves to take her place,
And I am left to grieve.
Yet spring has left her imprint,
To show that she was there...
She painted bright a landscape,
That once was brown and bare.
