  The sky was grey and it was dreary
I was feeling pretty weary
of the winter much too long
when I heard a birds sweet song

Looking for the little fellow
I came upon a patch of yellow
ladies laughing at the snow
in an early spring time show

Lovely laughing dafodills
chased away my winter chills
Filled my heart with springs delight
They were such a welcome sight

I loved this one! Seems to me you have shown some of us what we really already know, and forget...when you are down, get out and mingle with the world! Thanks!
