Spring Song

Because being eight

Is a Serious Thing,

Because spiderweb kites

And ospreys' wings

Share the sky

In springtime flings;

Because birdsong and treebuzz

Keep whispering...

We've all decided

To tell the truth

About blossoms and blooms

And moss on the roof,

Having discovered

A Remarkable Thing:

That Katelyn is one

Of the names of Spring.

- David W. Mitchell
