Amazing Spring

Spring comes with its lengthening days

Enticing the earth to receive

And share rain with seedling’s sprout!

We stand amazed as buds unfold

And young of animals leap out.

 

We fall in love with love again,

Agree to every noble thing,

Take in beauty earth unfurls

And bathe ourselves with cleansing vows

In founts of youth, in shaded bowers.

 

Spring leaves the crusty past behind,

Stripping away what is unkind

And leads to paths where light shines;

Inspires birth’s delivery

Of thought, ideas of clarity.

 

We honour Spring, surrendering

To soil that keeps and nourishes

Fruitful seeds of imagining:

New life, new hope, perspectives,

Our innate possibilities.
