Spring Recollection


(Written from an Autumnal Australia)

More than a season
An uprising of the heart
The greening of souls


No time, no time the housewife cries
As all around her chaos lies.
'Beds to make and food to cook;
Where did you put your library book?
Lunches to pack, and hair to brush,
Homework to check! All I do is rush!'

No time, no time Grandfather sighs
'The days zoom past before one dies.
So many flowers and pretty faces,
Scenery, enchanting places,
So many things to see and do
I wish  had as much time as you.'
