Spring is back! Summer will soon be following!
April showers and spring flowers go hand in hand.
Trees are blooming and turning green.
Branches, no longer bare, wear their verdant
Attire: foliage and berries abound.
Tweeting continually, birds come back
To inhabit the trees, stepping out of the warmth
And softness of their well-hidden nest.
They charm the ear with their songs.

People’s moods reflect the seasons.
In winter, they frown in their heavy coats.
In summer, they wear sunshine on their face.
They smile at one another in the spring.
They are also enthralled by the golden
Magic of the trees in autumn.
Each season determines people’s behavior!
