I look down
What do I see?
Beauty is everywhere.
I just want to be.

I slowly reach
Spring flowers awaken
The daffodils,
they are taken.

I cup them
in my hands.
Admiring them greatly,
I smile with a wide band

They are just a palmful:
Bright, just like spring,
smelling wonderful
In the south, they bring

It's a new beginning
air everything out
let's me know that I'm alive
I belt my excitement in a shout.
