Canadian Spring By John Murray Lewis

                                                                 Canadian Spring

Beware the icy blast, young buds
And sleep a little longer still
Though sun may shine and birds may trill
And rain may fall in roaring floods

For while the earth is slick with mud
The air is howling hard and chill
Beware the icy blast, young buds
And sleep a little longer still

Should cheerful April lure and tug
Your shoots from dark and earthy hills
The sight of green would surely thrill
But April winds will freeze green blood
Beware the icy blast, young buds.
