Miracle of Springtime


If you listen, if you lean close

To the singing, Springtime earth,

You can hear faint muffled voices,

You can harken sounds of mirth;

For above the running water

Souls of grass and shrub and tree

Are now lifting through the darkness

in a mystic symphony.

In the shadows of the woodland,

In the valley, on the hill,

You can hear the green grass whisper

To the waking daffodil;

And anemones are leaning

To the songs the lilacs sing,

As the earth lifts from its sleeping

In the miracle of Spring.

- Edgar Daniel Kramer
