From the morning when the spring bird sings,
From the garden full of spring scent,

Desiring every long awaited spring
Wishing for the early return of dark winter,

Falling all day. 
I am on the train- 
Feeling my soul- 
Seeing my world.

Wandering around the world 
Finding my way home 
Whether it’s snow or rain.
