The Scent of Spring

By Allison Stein, age 12, Michigan


Breathing in air followed
By a heavy sigh
Of admiration and awe that you’ve
Inhaled the scent of spring

It is a mixture
Of your favorite recipes
It is sweet but tangy
Yet it melts in your mouth

It smells like flower petals
Before they have bloomed
It is clean and fresh
And the breeze takes your breath away

When you pause before letting
That breath of air finally escape
You feel regretful yet hopeful
That springtime is near

Bitter-sweetness surrounds you
This is the scent of spring!
