Not yet exceptional. When the exceptional rating is reached this is highlighted
A minute of spring fever.


by sandy montgomery

So gently falls fresh springtime rain, 
Cleanse winter's stain,
March sends it's scent
To wind it's lent

New buds arise, fresh from the ground
Birdsong abounds
My hands will fill
With daffodil

My heart will greet the brand new spring
With joy I sing
No more forlorn
The earth's reborn
