"Although there is a worm in the apple / Although there is a snake in the garden / And we wonder as we grasp and grapple / Soft spring warms hearts winter freezes harden"

A Spring Worth Waiting For

A winter of extraordinary rain
Months of flood and mud and cold and trouble
My furnace out from beginning to end
Those short days with long nights now down the drain
Therefore the rising spring is a double
Blessing for me as I see light again

As I make a new and find an old friend
As one I thought was lost was not somehow
And life itself seems friendlier to me
I find myself open to others now
A part of humankind's community
As I feel the sun on my face and dream

Lemon blossoms and jasmine scent the breeze
Yellow butterflies flutter by and seem
To greet me and I think God sent me these
Small messengers of light to say to me
Tune in turn on drop out drop in stay strong
I rub my eyes and see that I can see

Although there is a worm in the apple
Although there is a snake in the garden
And we wonder as we grasp and grapple
Soft spring warms hearts winter freezes harden
And all will be all right somehow will be
A spring worth waiting for all winter long
