First Spring Rain
The first warm spring rain is blessing us with sweet water from the sky.
At last, the bulbs will be able to push aside last year's leaves and the Robins will have worms to pull out. The dust, salt and grime will be rinsed away to become part of the compost of soil.
The last traces of frozen earth will be thawed out, and pretty soon I'll be able to hear the blades of grass push out, so to feed the woodchuck.
The frogs and toads will be heard across the open fields and thickets, and birds will celebrate the good season with their song and their plumage.
Blessed be the first warm spring rain!
