The Gentle Spring


As the days grow warmer, longer,
As the sun grows strong,
We can see the birds returning,
We can hear their song.

As the snow drips from the laneways,
As the earth renews,
We can see the little creatures,
Pairing up in twos.

As the world begins it's rebirth,
As love and hope return,
We can see God's earth rebuilding,
With each leaf and fern.

As the winter passes slowly,
As the leaves appear,
We can see God's gentle wonders,
Always---everywhere.

GrandmaJo~
Well, you came back with
a flourish of spring-in-the-making.
Lovely images.

Welcome back Jo! Good to see you in the forums again. Spring is on it's way and I can't wait (though the pairing up thing would be nice, I have my doubts...lol)

Welcome back! You brought us some spring cheer, and we needed this around here!

I just the other day, standing in the back yard, watching the birds busy themselves making nests high up in the trees. Wonderful sight that was, wonderful poem too!

Glad you've returned!

What a wonderful poem. Springtime is all around me here in Mississippi. I am loving it so far.
