As the sun slowly rises in the east,
Dawn ascends as the sun's rays stream into my bedroom
Engulfing me with warm sunshine.
All around the sun pours into the day,
Melting snow piles from an endless winter.
A smile dances across my face
Birds chirping means spring is near.
Oh, nasty winter snowman, slowly you melt
Disappearing into the ground
As my heart also melts, warmed by the sun
Not from the swift blizzard snow from a fore night ago,
Which left my heart cold and numbed.
My eyes close as the birds' chirping lulls me
Into a pleasant dreamland
Warm from the not too distant spring sun
Shining its warmth through my bedroom window
And into my heart.
