How softly falls the gentle rain

That trickles down the window pane

Reminding us that spring is due

Before the Lenten days are through.

As Easter wears her coat of green

And early buds burst on the scene

The trees prepare for all the guests

Who’ll need to gussy up their nests.

Oh what a joy for us to bear

With such great memories to share

As spring returns again this year

To spread its happiness and cheer !

Today is such a lovely day

So full of Spring in every way

My mind is clear, the air has bounce

I need embrace it every ounce !

The buds are blooming everywhere

Their fragrance permeates the air

Oh what a joy our God does bring

To each of us with newborn spring !

I’ve spent the morning in the park

And watched the shadows growing dark

Quite soon the rains will shower down

And all the clouds will sport a frown.

The birds above will share a bath

While toads and frogs hop in the path

The rain will seep into the ground

To soak the seeds that it has found.

A simple truth we can’t deny

That we are only passing by

We need the rain to help us see

Our world bathed in complexity !

The morning sun begins to shine

O’er sloping roofs with steep incline

As seagulls flown out to the sea

Do swoop and pluck their breakfast free.

An early breeze bears frosted breath

The remnants of past winter’s death

How grand it is expecting spring

To feel so good with God’s blessing !



FLOWERING CHERRY ( 2016 ) 2016/04/03

The rain is falling to the ground

It’s drip, drip, dripping all around

I watch the branches of the trees

Blowing gently with each new breeze

There is a sweet smell in the air

Flowering cherry, oh so fair.

The outer limbs sway fore and aft

Crowding blossoms upon each shaft

Millions of petals, what a sight

Precious flowers in pink or white !

The winds of March are on the wane

O’ershadowed by young April’s rain

The clouded skies loom ominus

While springtime clouds crowd over us.

A hint of blossoms fills the air

Oh how I wish that I were there

When lilac blooms begin to show

There is no place I’d rather go !

I see God’s colors clearly, crisp blue of winter sky

The umber of the dried leaves as they go flashing by

Cool gray of all the clouds as they circumvent up high

And in the sleeping gardens, dull green of plants that die.

The colors are quite somber, I wish they were alive

Suppose I’ll have to wait for the springtime to arrive

I can barely bide the time till the brightness will revive

As I make this silent wish that I shall be alive !
