There’s no way that we can deny that Spring has really and truly arrived – there are signs of it wherever we look – glorious swaths of daffodils waving their pretty heads in the wind
crocuses splashing their colour with joyous abandonment
delicate blossoms sprouting from what were not too long ago bare branches
tiny buds bursting with promise
I love the Spring!
I came across this poem written by my mum many – many years ago – I have her to thank for so much inspiration that she continues to pass on 19 years after leaving this world.
I went out walking this afternoon – with joy abroad in my heart
For I went to meet a well loved friend – after long – long months apart
How grand it was to see her – in beauty all arrayed
For hours and hours contentedly – with her I could have stayed
Where’re I went I saw her – and felt her in the air
And everyone seemed happy – because my friend was there
The splendour of her presence – was revealed in everything
Oh – thank you God for bringing back – my longed for friend – the Spring
I’m sure that you feel the same as I do – so glad to have my friend Spring back with me! So – even on the cold days – or when you’re feeling down – can I encourage you to go and meet with her – she is sure to lift your spirits – and give you hope.
