To the editor:
So wonderful to hear the voices returning to usher the season
The stream rushing, gurgling over rocks
Water enough to refill winter's long touch
Teasing the river to rise to the new beginnings
Birds awaken loudly calling to the warming sun
Hopefully it is here to stay
As the water is just every thing's backdrdop, cascade and chorus to songs
And all the necessary green
It is beautiful with the fullness of hope
It is spring in Kansas.
