The World Woke Green Today

 I stared and stared when I got up...what is different? oh, the world woke green!

The world woke green today
Freed from dull garb it wore
See how the earth its Lord obeys
The world woke, green once more

Its tattered underlay
Is overcome with spring
The imminence of blooming days
Saturates everything

We forgive winter’s chill
And the ill winds that blew
Because after they’ve had their fill
The world wakes green and new
