Inspirational Poetry of Connie Arnold
Poetry collection about seasons and music, including poems for each month, holidays, and descriptive, beautiful, lilting, uplifting poems about all seasons.
Like Flowers in the Spring
Through the winter bulbs are hiding
in the shelter of the ground,
waiting until spring
for their beauty to be found.
The tulips and the daffodils,
with the hope they contain,
are filled with a promise
that their beauty will remain.
Although they seem quite lifeless
while their beauty cannot show,
when spring returns they slowly
start to rise, bloom and grow.
We too can have the promise
of springtime in each life,
when we can grow and blossom
after facing pain and strife.
Although we often suffer,
God will lovingly fulfill
His promise to creation
that He is faithful still.
As we hold onto the hope
that, like the flowers in spring,
we will burst forth from our sorrows
with a joyful song to sing.
Journey Through the Seasons
“A Symphony of Seasons” takes you through each season, Spring , Summer, Winter and Fall. What I love about the book is that it begins with “Songs Of Each Season” and then you begin your beautiful journey within each season through words beautifully written from the heart of Connie. I love Spring so I chose a little “excerpt” of poetry on this beautiful season:
A Season of Hope
When spring returns to the earth
It’s a time of renewal and birth
With a promise of better tomorrows;
When you’re trying just to cope,
To reach and blindly grope,
It’s a season of fresh hope,
With a chance of relief from your sorrows….
Connie has been given a gift which can only come from God. You not only read her words, you feel and live her words. You are uplifted, encouraged and given hope through her gift. If you have a love of poetry (and even if you don’t), I highly, highly recommend you buy this book as well as the three other books she has written: Abundant Comfort and Grace, Abiding Hope and Love and Beautiful Moments of Joy and Peace.

Painting with Words
When I hear from author Connie Arnold, I sit up and take notice. She has the gift to not just write, but paint with her words. I can't think of a lot of people who can do that.
Connie has a new book out and it was my pleasure to review it. Connie breaks the book into Songs of Each Season, Winter, Spring, Summer, and Fall. I'm not able to share a sample, but I don't need to. A Symphony of Seasons is so reasonably priced, you can purchase it and agree with me.
* Connie really paints words. I'm someone that has trouble picturing things unless it is right before me. I'm not an abstract thinker. This is what makes her work so special, because in few words, she gives a panoramic, sweeping view of her subject. Her landscapes make me want to go where it is she is "painting." She makes it look easy, but it isn't. If you enjoy nature, praise, God's beauty and the seasons, you are in for a real treat.
* She covers the seasons. As I went through her poems, every moment I could think for each season is included. The book is comprehensive, incorporating every sight and sound that I could imagine about each season. There's not an event or a part of the senses that isn't included-and it's all done with mastery and beauty.
A Symphony of Seasons is another inspired, vivid work by Connie Arnold.

Songs of the Soul in Poetic Harmony
A Symphony of Season by Connie Arnold is laced with beautiful pictures of life. In this amazing book you will find songs of the soul written in poetic harmony of the spirit. I believe my favorite poem in this book is Symphony of Creation because is sings to my heart truth. As my two favorite seasons are spring because of the lush regrowth and rebirth of life, and Fall because of all the crisp colors of life that lingers in the air. Through Connie's writes I have a new fond respect for winter and summer my least two favorite seasons of the year. A greater understanding is put in a new illuminating spotlight that will give you a new look on life. I give this book a 5 star rating and hope that everyone will pick up this book and read it. This is one book I will add to my library to read over and over again. The uplifting nature of this book takes you to new places, and teaches you to search deep within your self to understand your soul. A Symphony of Seasons is surely one of the best books I have read in 2012.
