Ode to Spring (In Surrey)

O Sun! A star ablaze on the sacred sky
Gardens are gaudy; grasses are green on the glorious ground
Squirrels sneak silently on the shaded streets
Crows and gulls cackle in glee
Cirrostratus clouds splendid in their clarity

No more scarves nor bonnets nor mitts
No more worries about snow ice and slips

Tree trunks, barks, and branches are browner
Lustrous leafs, shimmery as if chandeliers
People are friendly; pets are frisky
Songs are cheerful; chores are simple

Winter is gone; Spring has come
The first of floral feasts and frolic and fun

O Spring! A sunny season anew in Surrey, the city where I stay

– 11:28 p.m., Sunday, March 6, 2004; Surrey, British Columbia
While listening to “Braveheart” by Vermont Sugar House
(single release; 1999, Firestation Records)
