Rain has been falling and the skies are gray
All the snow has melted; it's a dreary day.
Everything is brown no matter where I look.
The only comfort I get is in the pages of a book.
Spring is surely coming; I mean it does each year,
But until the grass turns green I always have a fear.
I know we'll have some snow in March and maybe later on,
Sometimes it's on the tulips before the winter's gone.
So today I'll read my book and dream of warmer places,
Picnics at parks, and crowds of people at car races.
It's just a matter of time before my dream comes true.
But I'm ready for warmer weather NOW! How about you?
