I.    Autumn's presence
      Nothing but the crisp smell of 
      Fallen leaves and the in-and-out
      Patterns of warm days laced with chill
II.   Snow storms in March
      And April
      Cold and ice when and where
      It just shouldn't be
III.  Lengthening days 
      And screwed up sleeping schedules
      As night comes later
      And an hour is lost from the day
      Try not to have an early schedule that week
      Because deep regret will follow with the first morning
IV.  Flowers blooming and birds returning
      Trees coming back to life with buds of pink
      And chirps of winged beauties 
      Blessing the steadily-warming mornings
V.   Sunlight
      Warmth of the oncoming summertime
      And grass flowing lush and green
      Once the April showers have been chased away
      And this part of the world
      Has come back to life

Someday, I like to think. . .

A scratched record... love that metaphor. Our Spring here in Utah is having the same identity crisis this year for sure :)
