"It's Spring"

The springtime we've been waiting for
it finally has arrived
yet many of the trees we all like
through the storms never survived.
 
Yes strong winds and rain; with heavy ice
caused havac all around
still we now have many robins
that are hopping all around.
 
It's time to plant the garden
and soon to mow the lawn
now with daylight savings here again
most free time will be gone.
 
The farmers once again must wait
for their fields to dry out
yet they will get the crops in
of this I have no doubt.
 
The weather changed so many things
though the challenge most will meet
yes and say a prayer for farmers
for they supply the food we eat!
