Spring Times in Plants/Humans

An Old Tree in Spring Bloom
Spring Times in Plants/Humans

by Remigius de Souza

In the life of a tree
Springtime comes free

a hundred several times;
in a human life but once,

you may have seen
many a monsoon

but spring time once
that you might live

knowing it is there
or missed forever.

Hold it in your soul
And let it radiate forever.

New Year begins with spring time in lunar calenders in India and other countries.
