It Must Be Spring, and Yet....

(to the tune of Stella by Starlight)......

It must be Spring, and yet......

Buds on the Fly-Honeysuckle bushes

Still snow behind the house.

It must be Spring, and yet....

Flowers on the Red Maples
Ice in the marsh.

It must be Spring, and yet....

Cornus mas ready with its dusty blooms

Leaves whirling down the wind,

It must be Spring, and now....

Scilla bifolia in its pink form
The song begins,

the rush arrives, the birds announce their plans,

the sun is warm again.

It must be spring, it must be spring.

Crocus 'Ruby Giant'

Oh yes, it must be Spring.
