When Spring Arrives...

When spring arrives it feels to me that an old friend who has journeyed long, has finally arrived on my doorstep. I fling the door open with delight and even though I’m expecting her, I’m always a little surprised at her arrival.

But always…always…I throw my arms around her and we dance in the sheer delight of each others company. She stands there smiling brightly…slightly windswept and wearing a spring dress of blossom pink and new leaf green that whispers softly as she moves.

How long can you stay"?” I ask her and she smiles and says vaguely “Oh, at least a few months”. She never stays too long as she doesn’t cope well with the heat of summer but I know, I just know, we’re going to have a wonderful time together while she’s here…we always do.

Hello Spring, I’m so glad you’ve come!
