Spring Poem
Take Two: Given a second chance, how would this be different? Rewrite the ending to a book, movie, scene, fable, quote, etc.
To celebrate the arrival of Spring yesterday, I tried to find a nice Spring poem to share. Instead, I found this:
Ode to Spring
O spring, O spring
You wonderful thing!
O spring, O spring, O spring!
O spring, O spring,
When the birdies sing
I feel like a king,
O spring!
~Walter R. Brooks
Either rewrite this awful poem or write your own brief Ode to Spring.
HERE'S MY ANSWER:

The birds are happily singing
Early in the morning
They can't wait
For you to wake up
And enjoy Spring.

Bright green shoots are popping
Up through the dead winter leaves
They can't wait
For you to wake up
And enjoy Spring.

The sun is shining
The sky is clear
They can't wait
For you to wake up
And enjoy Spring.

And then the humans come in imposing
Daylight Savings Time on us
and all of nature must wait another hour
For you to wake up
And enjoy Spring.

Enjoy your day, enjoy your Spring and Peace to all of you.  B : )

This is ever so perfect!!!! Excellent job, truly. As a matter of fact, I dislike DST so much. Both spring forward and fall back. Ewwwww.
