There’s something in the air
That’s new, and sweet, and rare;
A scent of Summer things,
A whirr, as if on wings.

And though on plain and hill
’Tis Winter, Winter still;
There’s something seems to say,
That Winter’s had its day,
And all this changing tint,
This whispering stir and hint,
Of bud and bloom and wing,
As the approach of Spring.

There’s something, too, that’s new,
The color of the blue
That’s in the morning sky
Before the sun is high.

Once more, and yet once more,
Returning as before
We see the bloom of birth
Make young again the earth.
