LIFE AND A PROMISE OF RELIEF!

Birds are singing increasingly,
The promise of spring is born on the air.
Blossoms are bursting forth on bushes and trees,
Winter is fleeing fast... as new life is born everywhere!

Even in a world's attitude,
Grown satirical and cold...
People sense the promise of new life,
As tender green shoots are dressed in flower heads of purple, white and gold!

Animals too sense spring's promise,
As their winter sleep slips away.
After months of huddling in burrows,
They are venturing out again to forage, mate and play!

Yet... mostly spring's arrival
Speaks personally to me...
Of The Father's Love as You Left this world,
Dying on Calvary's Tree!

For winter can SEEM dark and dank,
Or icy beyond belief!
Yet... as spring rolls the door of winter's icy tomb away,
It brings life... and a promise of relief!
