How softly falls the gentle rain
That trickles down the window pane
Reminding us that spring is due
Before the Lenten days are through.
As Easter wears her coat of green
And early buds burst on the scene
The trees prepare for all the guests
Who’ll need to gussy up their nests.
Oh what a joy for us to bear
With such great memories to share
As spring returns again this year
To spread its happiness and cheer !
