spring will return

I should plow the land
and wait around
for spring to come
I should put the seed
into the ground
and wait for spring to come

The day lies frozen on our patch
I’ve got a fire going
That scar you have is not as red
Spring will return
it always has

I should dig my hands
into the dirt
and wait for spring to come
Let’s make the scarecrow
a new shirt
and wait for spring to come

Soon you’ll wear your summer dress
Although it isn’t showing
There’s something growing from the ash
Spring will return
it always has
and bring the blue sky back

Spring will return it always has

The next cold day may be the last
Spring will return
it always has

Last year’s crows rebuild their clumsy nest
And you will see we’ve got the greener grass
