A soft sound – a chirp announced it all
I am sure you saw the first bud
Out of the corner of you eye
Do you remember the whiff
of Sweet peas as you crossed the garden?
Draped in morning dew
Abundant in purity, breathtakingly fresh
There were bees around
They knew it much before you did
Kittens played catch on slippery grass
Lightning streaks with furry tails
Did you take a moment and let yourself be greeted by the flowers?
Did you savour your surroundings — acknowledge the love they had for you?
On the day the earth became your friend again
A day when you felt like saying everything
For every unjust oppression, a freedom true
For every moment of fear, a deep reservoir of courage
For every harsh winter, a beautiful spring
Colour, laughter, and hope, it will surely bring
