Awakening: Hibernation turns to spring

The snow is reluctant to leave
Trying to cling to each blade of grass
Every limb of the tree
But the grass wants to grow
And the buds want to bloom

The animals feel the daylight change
Their ears, eyes, and nose, are eager to explore the wood
The bear cub spots the first light of day
The newly hatched owl chicks watch from above
Minnows will soon swim in the streams

Spring is here, spring is coming
Spring is finally upon us.
