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.
