Smells of Spring
by: trista groulx

Opened the window and smelled spring
The unmistakable smell of it
When the snow is melting
And the concrete is drying
The soggy grass start topeak through
Opened the window and smelled the spring
Though the spring is not here now
It's just the February thaw
And what I need is the spring
The time where it all rejuvenates
When the animalsbecome twitterpatted
And humans start to feel it to
When everything starts to grow again
Opened the window and smelled spring
Though it's still a long while away
But I need it to be spring
So you will have your time alone
And we might try again
Because that's what spring symbolizes
Birth and re-growth
How I love the spring smells right now
Reminding me it's not all that far
And that all hope is not lost
Opened the window and smelled spring
It made me feel so much better
Even when I'm alone right now
The spring will bring me something back
So this spring better not doddle
I have no time for that this year!
Opened the window and smelled the spring
And it will soon be here for real!
My hope my just be found in the spring
If spring still loves me it will be found again
So I wait to open the window to spring, for real
