The funny smell of air in spring
Brings a whiff of freshness into my nostrils,
The fleeting shadows with the light,
With the warm shine of summer sun.

As I often wait for morning to begin,
As I do for the winter to end
As I wait for the flowers to bloom,
And as I do for the grass to grow.

Instilling a new-found confidence,
Often perks up my prudence,
And I dance into the air of spring,
With a new spring in my steps.

So we always do Danny,

A frosty Winter yields a pleasant spring,
When the dogwood, she smiles , gives a ring...

thanks for reading,

Hi Sudhir!  Wonder how this one slipped
by -----)
Lovely   -- spring does bring such freshness
and a new bounce into one's step.
Sigh, now if it would only quit raining
LOL

it's like awakening from a restful sleep, the way Spring makes us feel.  What a wonderful interpretation, I enjoyed the first line about how Spring smells...so true.  I look forward to reading others from you.

Thanks Shilpi, for reading and posting your response...

Looks like spring is fleeting away now, and summer is breaking through....

That in an art gallery is left hanging,
Though many come just to look at it,
A very few actually come to enjoy it.

Oh ... I feel the same way Sudhir. This is my favorite season, and you've captured the freshness beautifully, lovely verse.

Best wishes,
