SPRING By Knarik O. Meneshian The sun is brighter. The air is warmer. The grass is turning green And tiny buds can now be seen. Rising from A long winter's sleep, We turn to ebullient thoughts Of the coming spring. A time to reflect Upon springs of yesterday. A time to dream of Springs of tomorrow. Spring - the anticipation Of life anew. Spring - the realization Of life's enigma. February 2005 -- Knarik O. Meneshian was born in Austria.
