‘Shades of Spring’

At last it seems the garden

Is coming into bloom.

Introducing colour,

Dispelling all the gloom.

The birds are busy nesting,

And soon will have their young.

Their enthusiastic singing

Is a sign that Spring has sprung.

So get busy in your borders,

And give your lawns a trim.

All this exercise and fresh air

Will save you money at the gym.
