First Day’s Warming Joy
On that special day when the earth first turns warm,
And the sap rises in old grey branches, pushing death aside,
Birds sing the songs that call the young and old out of their houses…
As all greet a new season of life!
I went outside today, to enjoy a taste of Heavenly delight!
My skin caressed by life awakening sun soothed my winter aches,
Worries of the world lifted; and for a few happy hours melted all away…
How grateful I am for another spring!
Tomorrow, the rain is coming they say, to green winter’s grey,
Rain drops sink deep in warmer ground, nourish my future flowers,
Give new birds a shower and a drink; add sparkle to brighten their song…
I will hug today when tomorrow comes.
I know I am loved and I am greatly blessed with longest days of sun!
Rays lengthen empowering life to rise again; new life spring from ground!
Truth made known across millennia, a miracle witnessed on time every year…
God is faithful verified by spring witness.
