Spring time should be just around the corner, but today it snowed again. I can't wait for winter to give way as buds bloom and new life is everywhere.
I did this illustration based on a poem The Magic Piper by F.L. Marsh.
There piped a piper in the wood
Strange music-soft and sweet-
And all the little wild things
Came hurrying to his feet.
They sat around him on the grass,
And listened, as with shining eyes
Sweet melodies he made.
The wood grew green, and flowers sprang up,
The birds began to sing;
For the music it was magic,
And the piper’s name was - Spring!
Spring is just around the corner, wait just a bit longer and you'll see the sun for longer than the a blink of the eye.
