An explosion of colour

I can hear the raindrops, pitter-pattering on the roof
"Springtime is coming", they sing, "and we are the proof!"
To soft gentle raindrops the snowflakes have turned
And brought with it weather for which we have yearned
A few weeks ago the snow was steadily falling
And with it a wind icy cold, whistling and howling
But with each passing day it gets warmer and warmer
The wind has died down and the air is much calmer
The blankets of snow are melting away
The sun has come out and chased off the grey
The earth may be muddy, but the grass is green
The roads may be slushy, but the air is clean
The tulips are blooming - loud and bright
Daffodils and hyacinths - such a welcome sight!

Radha and Krsna begin Their spring sport
He throws on Her colours once She's been caught
Vermillion and yellow, blue, pink and green
Such an explosion of colour has never been seen
A festival of beauty, of joy and of love
Bursts forth in the colours that fall from above
And just like in Vraja springtime, does bring
A time of devotion - for Krsna we we'll dance and we'll sing

So winter is over and here is the proof -
The pitter-patter of raindrops falling on the roof

- P.S Happy Holi!!
