Not yet exceptional. When the exceptional rating is reached this is highlighted
Some things I like about spring, but not everything

An English Spring

by PhilipCatshill

Forsythia paints hedgerows yellow,
Graceful daffodils with flowers bow,
While in ranks like soldiers, tulips bloom
And chase away winter's freezing gloom
To attract a mate, the blackbirds sing
Then feel the warmth of returning spring

Darkness chased away by sunshine bright,
Lengthening day giving shorter night.
Nature returns from its winter's sleep,
Turnout the cows, new born lambs for sheep.
Migrating birds fly back on the wing
Announce to all the return of spring.

Honey bees awake in humming hives,
Gardeners plant out lettuce and chives.
Deciduous trees break out in leaf,
But spring also heralds certain grief
If from working, an income you earn;
It's time for the dreaded tax return!
