When springtime comes I rejoice, for my forced confinement through months of cold and snowy winter at last is over. The sight of the mountains with their fresh bloomed flowers and rocky peaks is like a siren call, luring me out into the grand outdoors.

When springtime comes I do rejoice, for forced confinement through the months of cold and snowy winter are at last complete. The sight of mountains with their freshest blooms and rocky peaks is like a siren call, that lures me out into the grand outdoors.
