Waka* this way

The sun shone brightly

On our daily morning walk

The first day of spring

Of flowers we now can talk

Songs of birds, small tufts of green

Signs of hope before unseen

* a Japanese poem consisting of 31 syllables in 5 lines, with 5 syllables in the first and third lines, and 7 syllables in the others.
