Soft the chimes of waning winter ring
Playing tunes of silver
Cool yet with hints of warmth are seen
Through the curtains of mist in the break of dawn
Birds shiver yet as they feed
Though everyday there are more
Gathering around the pond to visit
Bathing in the sunlight mid morning rays
The children shed their coats quickly now
Hot from the brisk walk home from school
Their cheeks no longer burning from the cold
Bites of northern winds have mellowed with age
Soon the days will lengthen into balmy yellow
Shadows will be cool and comforting
When we seek out full leafed trees
Happy for a bit of shade
