The gay season of spring

Seems to put in my gait a natural spring.

Full of cheer zooms my spirit,

Full of jauntiness and light becomes my spirit


Even my shoes seem to walk me faster,

Seeing the blooms around merrier,

The birds twittering, hopping, flying,

The bees and the butterflies rejoicing.


And the best thing is that spring will come again,

Will spread cheer again and again,

What a great season to wander light heartedly,

And admire this spectacular manifestation rejoicingly!


Basking in the warmth of spring.

Imbibing the cheer and beauty of spring,

Let me all ills cast away completely,

And immerse in the prevailing gaiety!


My spirit enthused highly,

Capture the sweetness will I mentally,

Yes, in my mind’s eye

To bask in its warmth nay.
