    i can’t imagine what would happen if the rivers ever stopped running. Fresh and clean is what spring brings. Nicely done!

        My problem is that I don’t quite have Paul Robeson’s range. When it gets to the particularly low bass notes, I begin to sound a bit like a frog πŸ™‚

    Nice imagery. Spring can lurk as much as it wants.

      Yes, I wish it would lurk a little harder where I live. It’s cold, grey and rainy.

    I love this, Eugi! β€œLurking” is a cool word to attach to spring, like it is hiding, just waiting to make its move. Wonderful
