Almost Spring

Dunnock - in the hedge

Dunnock – in the hedge

For a moment Spring was here.
For a moment my song was clear.
For a moment joy danced around.
For a moment new hope was found.

But now I, silent, sit and mourn.
Spring’s promise into scraps is torn.
Where the sun so warm and bright,
From early dawn ’till sunset’s night?

Gone away and left behind,
Dank laden airs, all so unkind.
How can I sing my song of love,
While stifling mists press down above?

    I really love this one, David. And it’s about to happen to us too…this spring weather in February has the butterflies coming out, the flowers poking through. But there’s still snow in the forecast…

      Thanks Trisha – I was thinking – we can understand weather, but the birds and animals can’t.
