April showers might
Indeed bring May flowers, but
I prefer the sun.

Newly Sunny

Nothing feels as nice
As sunshine on bare shoulders
In early springtime.

Bring Me Sunshine

How I long for the sun,
For the warm summer air
And a song on the breeze.

How I loathe the steel clouds,
The gray winter sky
And the icy cold rain.

Bring me sunshine,
Bring me joy,
Bring me starry, starry nights.

Praying for Green

Like a leaf on the
Wind, I soar through the sky on
A late winter’s eve.

Now and then I look
Down at the snow-crusted ground,
Praying I’ll see green.

Delivery Fail

They promised us sun,
But they failed to deliver.
They promised us blue,
But they failed in that, too.

They promised us springtime,
A break from the clouds.
They promised us sunshine,
And much peace of mind.

But they lied. Or they failed.
Or they failed and they lied,
And nothing’s more dangerous
Than a man’s wounded pride.

And so we lie here,
Our hands round a beer,
As tears fall from the sky
And every man’s eye,
And we seek the sweet comfort
Of oblivion nigh.

Definitely Spring

It’s definitely spring.
There’s a chill in the air,
And it’s completely soggy outside,
But there’s a hint of green
That I’ve sorely missed.

Yes, it’s definitely spring.
There’s a song in the air,
And it’s completely sunny outside,
But there’s still a chill
That will not soon be missed.

Oh, it’s definitely spring…
