From February 2015.

 

Written to the approximate tune of the 1974 hit "When Will I See You Again?" by The Three Degrees.




When Will We See Spring Again?

When will we see spring again?
When will the trees start to blossom?
Will we have to wait forever?
Will we have to suffer, suffer, 
With arctic windchills?

When will we see spring again?
When will the bees start to bumble?
Will it get warm
Or stay cold?
Let me tell you, winter
Can get really old!
When will we see spring again?

When will we see bright blue skies?
Will the grass ever turn greener?
Will the snow melt
Or stay froze?
Will we regain feeling
In fingers and toes?
When will we see bright blue skies?

Come to us, April and May!
Bring us your showers and your flowers!
Bring us the birds
With sweet song!
Why DOES February
Seem seven weeks long?
Come to us, April and May!

Wonderful poem Thomas. However, if love winter. I find the only saving grace spring, especially early spring, has is anticipation of summer

This poem reminds me of the song "Where have all the flowers gone?" I find similarity in terms of rhythm.

These are questions I have been asking, though not with such gracefulness.

This is very enjoyable, Tommo. All at Coo & Co know the tune, and we feel these lyrics are an excellent fit with the slightly melancholy melody. (Pause, while all sing sweetly together.)

We empathise with the singer's longing for the spring season, as it's very chilly here at present. Our favourite part is 'the bees start to bumble' :>)
