She has waited with patience as Lady Winter held sway over the earth.
But finally her time has come and Lady Spring steps out from behind a curtain of green.
Color begins to burst from the ground. Dark gives way to light and the world begins to wake again.
Quietly gaining momentum she gathers harbingers of new life and sets them free.
And sends sweet scented blossoms drifting down the river.
In a dance to music she alone hears she scatters a confetti of petals to celebrate.
Knowing her season is short but without envy or sadness she pours out all she has and settles down by the brook, to wait while the coolness fades.
