Spring Song

May 22, 2009

I’m not going to worry about science today,
Or the state of the world economy.
I’m not going to think about climate change,
Or whether we’re headed for ruin.

The sun is out, the sky is blue,
It’s a blue so pure and serene.
The air tastes sweet, the light is golden,
The flowers are unfolding.

I know there are many thorny problems
Facing us all today,
But I’m shelving them till tomorrow
And I’m going out to play.

I’m sorry if this sounds selfish,
I know I should worry more;
But Spring is here, my blood is up,
I’ve got to go outdoors.

I’ll get back to the serious issues
In a day or two, I promise.
Right now I have a pressing date;
A walk in the park awaits.
