Spring of Delight

Live in the spring of life. The freshness ushered in, in every wakeful moment is meant to rejuvenate the spirit and help you to de-stress. Life sings a sonnet, sing along...
Usher in the spring of delight,
By clearing the cobweb murk.
Fill the day with scent and sight,
Replacing every gloomy quirk.

All it takes is a loving glance.
All it takes is an action wee.
All it takes is a flower for lance.
And darling, all this is for free!

You don't need a heavy purse.
You don't need an extra hand.
All you need is willful coerce,
To traverse the vale so grand.

One kind act makes you king.
One encouraging word, a lord.
One moment of selfless giving
In the mission will spell accord.

This lifetime is a gift to uphold,
And praise in the wake of breath;
On bended knee for form of gold,
To restore tread before frail death.
