I thought I saw the sun peeking,
through the dark clouds today
and in between the snowflakes
I prayed Spring was on its way.
For, I’m tired of the chilly days,
and the long cold, frigid nights
oh, how I wish Spring would come
with its sunny, friendly sights.
I look at my barren garden,
longing to see my climbing rose
just the thought of its perfume
tickles my frozen little nose.
This prayerful hope for Spring,
comes like a breath of fresh air
making me feel all giddy . . .
as this winter has been a bear.
I know this taste of Spring,
is just a little tease . . .
but soon the Lord will bring
a gentle warming breeze.
But, for now I’ll just have to wait,
for nature’s way and law . . .
and trust in the Creator’s timing
that my feet will begin to thaw!
King James Version
To every thing
there is a season
and a time to every purpose
under the heaven:”
