Today’s Topic “Spring Fever” and Today’s Project “Choose a song that lightens & energizes your spirit”
What is Spring?
What exactly is “Spring Fever”?
The MacMillan Dictionary defines it as “a feeling of excitement or energy that is thought to be caused by the beginning of spring”
Read “Fact or Fiction?:’Spring Fever’Is A Real Phenomenon” on Scientific American
Listen to THE DOCTORS talk about “The Scientific Facts About Spring Fever”
I’m as restless as a willow in a windstorm,
I’m as jumpy as a puppet on a string.
I’d say that I had spring fever,
But I know it isn’t spring.
I’m starry-eyed and vaguely discontented
Like a nightingale without a song to sing.
Oh, why should I have spring fever
When it isn’t even spring?
I keep wishing I were somewhere else,
Walking down a strange new street.
Hearing words that I have never heard
From a man I’ve yet to meet.
I’m as busy as a spider spinning daydreams,
I’m as giddy as a baby on a swing.
I haven’t seen a crocus or a rosebud
Or a robin on the wing.
But I feel so gay,
In a melancholy way,
That it might as well be spring,
It might as well be spring.
