After all the harsh weather, here comes spring
With all its freshness, shoots and hope
It’s been too cold, and uncomfortable.
No snow here for ages, but it was too much this year
The sun was roasting, and the dust annoying.
Luckily this way, the topography is plain for lots of farming
But we constructed our houses, pitches and roads
Without good drainage – outlet for spring
Then it rained unmercifully, never-ending for days
Ah! Sorry to say, floods inundated
Our houses, properties, crops and animals
Hmm! The cries, complaints were countless.
But the spring is still flowing with all its fresh waters.
It is spring again as we can see everywhere
The shoots have sprung out with all the freshness
Whether you planted them or not,
It is yet another planting season
It is spring again with a new air for hope
Plant now to harvest in summer, dry season
Plan now too, to make it, when time comes.
