Spring Time Is Coming

Beautiful Spring is coming,
Ah, yes, will soon be here,
For the clear bright sun is shining
All human hearts to cheer.
One the brightest gems of nature
Is the orb that o’er us shines,
And o’er the wide creation,
It’ll shine to the end of time.

The birds will soon be singing
On shrub and bough of trees,
Their notes will soon be ringing
Out, forth so merrily.
They love the merry spring time,
Those little birds we love,
They love the pleasant sunshine
That comes down from above.

We can hear them sweetly singing
From early morn, till night.
They make music in the woodland
Those little birds; so bright,
We should dearly love them,
Those little harmless things,
And when we hear their music,
We know that it is spring.

Ah; it’s pleasant in the springtime,
All nature seems so gay.
Bright flowers in the sunshine,
Sweet fragrance can display.
The hills, and dales, and meadows,
So beautifully covered o’er;
With natures richest verdure,
The green grass, as of yore.

The winter will soon be over,
With its cold and chilly winds.
It is sad and dreary ever,
Yet its dying, free from sin.
Now the springtime is coming,
Ah, yes, will soon be here.
We will welcome in its coming
In this glad new year.

– Julia A Moore (1847-1920 / United States)

She inspired Mark Twain to create the character of Emmeline Grangerford in Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. Grangerford’s funereal ode to Stephen Dowling Botts.

  • For The Love Of Spring, By By Georgina Harrington, 1st Year (paperclipsmagazine.wordpress.com)
    I love the three months February, March and April of spring each year
    because it is the start of all things new and all things bright and beautiful.
    There are new baby animals and birds being born.  Flowers, plants and
    trees are budding and growing.  GMT Summertime is getting closer as it
    starts this year on Easter Sunday 31 to the bright mornings and longer evenings.
    +
    Springtime represents new beginnings in our lives.  We are all on a
    similar journey but at different stage.  Springtime gives us a chance to
    rethink what we do for ourselves and our surroundings.
  • Springtime thoughts (missjayhawk.wordpress.com)
    Spring is the time when everything just seems to go right. Hopefully that won’t be true for just me.
  • Spring Quotables (and a Poem) (writingisfun-damental.com)
    secretly adoring shyly
    tiny winging darting floating
    merry in the blossoming
    always joyful selves are singing
  • April’s Springtime = Joy!!!! (redbyrdorchardcider.com)
    i wish i could take a sound recording of the orchard this morning and post it here for you, but alas, photos will have to suffice.  Birds galore…mocking birds singing through their playlist, woodthrush whistling, redwing blackbirds and robins flying from row to row.  It’s a cacophony of the best kind. Ahhhh, Spring!  Sunshine warming me through my sweatshirt, trees showing green tips, and luckily no blossoms yet.  Quite a change from last year’s spring.
  • It’s Spring!! (11elevennyc.com)
    Come springtime in NY you begin to notice the beauties that have been hidden for months by Winter. Not just because in Winter leaves and flowers don’t exist and trees become things of Tim Burton’s imagination but because it is just too cold to be out long enough to take notice of much of anything beyond the visibility of your own breath.
  • Springtime! (jogginginthesunshine.wordpress.com)
    The dead is brought back to life and everything seems so balanced and good again. I don’t know about anyone else, but once spring comes, I cannot help but be happy and so joyful! The depressing, seemingly endless cold has gone. No more dreariness, no more dullness, no more runny noses and red cheeks, and no more layers of leggings underneath pants and multiple socks inside boots. Spring brings a new beginning, new opportunities, and new experiences.

    Don’t we all wish we could have this renewal year-round!? Good news. We can. God provides for us this renewal anytime we want, we just have to ask for it. Everyone goes through plateaus or valleys in their spiritual life. In those times, we need some renewal, some new life, a little pep in our step. God has already brought our dead selves to life, just as the spring does for all the flowers, but now we have to continuously grow, bloom, and bear fruit. This is no easy job. There are days with no sunshine. There are days with too much sunshine, and not enough rain.  We get stuck, dull, and weary, without bloom. We feel defeated and need something, anything.
  • Springtime in Vancouver (emigratebc.wordpress.com)
    I stare at the new Community Garden which has sprung up on an abandoned parking lot near Science World – raised beds which a month ago were barely filled with soil, now a patchwork of shades of green .  The grass and wildflower roof of the Convention Centre is dazzling and busy with the bees from the Centre’s own hives.  The snow on the mountains, which look so close on a clear day, is almost too bright to look at.I find myself running late for meetings as I am distracted by all the new cleanness around me.  Buildings and signs and people I have ignored over the winter are suddenly too bright and interesting not to stop and watch.  This is a city where people take cherry blossom very seriously; so seriously that it is a weekend and evening pastime to go for a Japanese-style Cherry Blossom walk.

  • The Voice of Coming Spring (joeyphoenix.com)
    The winter is often a cruel mistress. She’ll tease you with sunshine then gift you with gale force winds. You’ll see a bright warm day, followed by a snowstorm. You’ll fight the urge to sink further and further into yourself, because you’re cold and exhausted and tired of traipsing through the ice.
  • Spring Sunshine (myfanwyfox.wordpress.com)
    I’ll welcome you,
    fling open doors,
    shuck off vesty layers,
  • Its Springtime in the Midwest (vote29.com)
    The Rock River iced over this Winter. The other day the ice started to break up and the river sent sheets of ice down stream toward the Mississippi.
  • springtime 1 (honoredabove.wordpress.com)
    This is the time of dancing. I redeem all things. As I orchestrate the cosmos, so I am involved in your life. My pleasure is to see you live: life, and life abundant. You are not here to suffer without hope, but to overcome. Victory is Mine, and I give it to you. Victory is yours!
  • 8 Reasons We’re Looking Forward to Springtime Photography (sarasotatim.wordpress.com)
    For us photographers, most seasonal changes bring about opportunities to take great photos under differing conditions, and usually no change is more dramatic than the transition from winter to spring.  The world thaws into a new and color-dripped landscape, ripe for capturing its natural beauty through springtime photography.
  • Springtime (alicehocker.com)
    We should welcome change into our lives, allowing as nature does.  Giving ourselves permission to blossom, enjoying life to the fullest.
  • It’s Springtime again… (staciawrightbreel.wordpress.com)
    Some of my closest professional friend/confidants keep telling me I need to start a blog.  So… Okay, here I am.  It’s Spring.
  • Find some nice photos on Springtime (hjsphoto.wordpress.com)
    After nearly one week of high feverish virus infection I am back, slowly…
  • Springtime in Bloom (benspark.com)
    For me, one of the official start to Spring is when our two backyard trees are in bloom. I took a photo of the flowers blooming on the tree as I walked to the car to go to work tonight.
  • Walter Russell Mead: Springtime in Kiev, or Just Another Winter Storm? (ivoter.com)
    With a revolution on, the chances that events in Ukraine could provoke a dangerous confrontation between Russia and the West may be increasing. Walter Russell Mead writes: For the third time in a generation, there is revolution in Ukraine. For the second time in a decade, Viktor Yanukovych has been overthrown in Kiev.
  • Spring flowers bring color to Baltimore (darkroom.baltimoresun.com)
    Sun photojournalist Karl Merton Ferron was walking with his family one morning in March and noticed hints of color from early spring flowers contrasted against an otherwise brown-and-gray winter.With the anticipation of springtime, he photographed the renewed colors and vibrancy of emerging blossoms. Some may consider a number of the images to be mere weeds, but weeds are only those plants people choose to remove, rather than cultivate.
  • Springtime walk with the dogs (unniewmartinsen.com)
    A few weeks ago, the winter finally released it’s grip of Copenhagen, and things started to look a bit brighter… and warmer. Now almost everything has bloomed, even though the temperature is not what it usually would be.
