Coming of Age

Spring is birth of the reborn
Opening leaf unto the sun
To petal forth in vibrancy
And claim the earth when winterís done

The dormant seedling comes of age
Arriving at the perfect hour
And gracefully assumes the stage
To spread the seed of blooming flower

A time to celebrate the life
For death and life to come as one
Nourished by the April rain
And flourished by the touch of sun

Springtime brings more to the spirit
Than the changes on the earth
It wakens love and wakens life
Arrousing hearts to passionís birth

No other moment brings such joy
And self awarness of our worth
