Will She Come?
Timidly she approached,
A forlorn princess
Dressed in drab brown splotched with gray and white.
She hesitated at every step
Sometimes, she would just disappear
Only to start again
A bit stronger
The gray and white blotches began to shrink and fade
And were soon gone
Magically, her brown dress became tinged with green
The green became brighter
A few bright yellow spots appeared
More and more colors showed up on her gown.
Tiny purple and blue speckles in the green.
Red, white, pink, lavender adorned her hair
Then dark brown lines fringed with green
Grew and grew on her gown
This green became bigger and brighter
Nearly hiding the brown lines
Now she looked like a true princess.
Welcome, Sweet Springtime
