I Honor Spring
As winter's grip begins to fade,
And all around, the world is made
Anew by Spring's unyielding force,
I honor her, the mighty source.
The snows recede, the ice departs,
And nature's beating heart restarts.
The fields are green, the trees in bloom,
And all the land is raised from gloom.
The sun climbs higher every day,
And all the world is on display.
The thawing streams and chirping birds
Sing out a song without the words.
To stretch and reach for warm sunshine
and dance and sway in rhythm, divine
the sky is blue; the clouds are white
and everything feels just so right
The melting snow, the gushing streams,
The gentle breeze and warming beams,
All speak to me of hope and light,
And fill my soul with pure delight.
And so I honor Spring today,
And in her warmth and light, I’ll stay.
With a grateful heart and open eyes,
I see the world with a child’s surprise.
