"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
