When winter still is in the air
And not a green leaf anywhere,
There are great flocks of birds that wing
Over our town to find the Spring.

I often wonder what they know,
And how they find out where to go—
Perhaps, because they're up so high,
They see Spring somewhere in the sky.

If I could fly the way they do,
I would make haste to find Spring, too—
I'd pull her gently by the hand
And bring her back to my own land.
