Today I am reporting on a seldom seen event: there is a large object in the sky which seems to be giving off heat and light. My library workers say this object is the sun. Old-timers say they recall when several days of sun would precede a season called spring. When asked, the Old-timers said something called flowers (technical term) would appear, the buds (technical term) on the trees would begin to show, and the snow (obnoxious white stuff AND technical term) would disappear. They also recalled grass (technical term) appearing from underneath the snow (oh those technical terms!).
Should this spring really occur, Humans and Animals will be leaping and skipping and hopping about. (Cats, of course, will be doing all this in a Very Dignified manner.) Old-timers will sing songs about “Tiptoeing Through the Tulips” and other fanciful melodies. Everybody look up into the sky and sing a song of welcome!!!
