The weather is getting warmer and the city is beginning to rouse from a long winter hibernation.  The first signs of Spring are emerging and the city welcomes it with open arms and warm laughter.  Chilly days will still happen here and there, but overall, Spring will rule the days!

Good-by My Winter Suit
by N.M. Bodecker

Good-by my winter suit,
good-by my hat and boot,
good-by my ear-protecting muffs
and storms that hail and hoot.

Farewell to snow and sleet,
farewell to Cream of Wheat,
farewell to ice-removing salt,
and slush around my feet.

Right on! to daffodils,
right on! to whippoorwills,
right on! to chirp-producing eggs
and baby birds and quills.

The day is on the wing,
the kite is on the string,
the sun is where the sun should be-
it's spring all right! It's spring!
