Seasons of Life by Audrey Cofield

Curved Corner

Spring Fever

It's as rapturous as the lights of home,
When one has been away,
When, chilly air and driving winds
Resign, to leave spring stay.

And children, like race horses
Before a race is run,
In restless animation
Unleash, in out-door fun.

Unmuffled screams resound,
In exultant gaiety,
To echo through the valley
Over country, hill and lea.

Like cobwebby gossamer
They spread upon the grass,
Supinely lay in stillness
And watch soft clouds float past.

Spring fever, is a malady,
That is apt to rampantly spread,
Through a desk-imprisoned class room
Before dismissal, has been said.
