"Where Did Spring Go?"

Now everywhere the greenery
far as the eye can see
yet where did the spring go
would someone please tell me.
 
Yes spring time with the yet cool nights
though signs that summers coming soon
it could be brisk in early morn
but quite warmed up by noon.
 
The trees were shedding all old leaves
and piles were raked where e're you'd go
yet I being from the Midwest
would wait til the wind did blow.
 
Now I know the neighbors were shouting
though it wasn't really at me
I feel they were just excited
at all the new leaves they'd see.
 
Yes springtime I did really miss
after waiting for a year
lets hope when winter next is gone
that springtime will appear.
