Spring has finally arrived and the rain has stopped
for now. The sun is shining today and it is a very welcome
sight to usher in the first day of Spring. The sun always lifts
your spirit and gives you hope for warmer days ahead.
When you can just jump into your shoes and head out the
door into the yard or garden where it seems all cares just
float away and peace comes to gently calm the soul.
Now Spring's reviving glance has freed
the ice from stream and river.
The valley turns green with joy of hope.
Old winter, growing impotent, crawls back
to the rough mountains; as he flees, he hurls
fitful gusts of icy-kerneled sleet
in streaks on the green meadows.
But the sun allows no whiteness;
growth and creation stir and strive
to cover everything with color.
