SPRING IN THE PARK
By H. Davis
Although spring was here quite
a few days ago I just discovered
it this past Sunday. I caught a
street car and hurried away from
swelte^ng streets and critical
eyes. The time was 173$ and the I
sun was just beginning to fold
its rays and draw the curtain on
the day. Fifteen minutes later
the park lay before me, beauti
fully green and fresh looking. I
disembarked and ran the few
yards to nature’s carpet and fell
on the cushion of green. The nice
warm moist earth’s smell filled
my nostrils and made me glad. To
the west a bird sounded off in
melodious notes. I wallowed erd
tried to cover myself with the
fragrance of spring.
The nights mist began to foil in
from the south and they recalled i
memories of my army days- 11
thought how majestic it was and 1
what a fine looking color scheme
it made as it joined the .green
I went down to the spring and
watched the gurgling water spil'
over the stones. Each drop told
its own individual story of her.
Low tinkling sounds were like
her throaty voice echoing sweet
phrases. The excess water mean
dered as did our love. Swiftly it
rolled in fluid like pace down the
steep incline only to slow down
when it struck the upgrade and
finally crash in turbulent disorder
before pouring into the brook. I
watched this process for about an
hour. Hypnotized by the realistic
picture of our life- Children’s lau
ghter filled the air and reawaken
ed me. I walked across a bridge
and paused- I dropped a lighted
but unsmoked cigarette in the wa
ter for She and I. Symbolic like
it floated swiftly down stream
until suddenly it hit a snag, then
it stopped abruptly and went un
der, lost forever. I dropped a
penny in' the same spot for fu
ture luck. I looked up through the
night, through the stalwart pines
and saw a bright future- A girl
smiled at me. I hope the past
three years in the Southwest Pa
cific have not made me different.
It is spring and a new thrilling
pulse is walking through my be
