If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant." Anne Bradstreet
Spring is robin's singing from their nests up in the trees
Buds blooming into flowers for everyone to see
Hills uncovering their white blankets to find a green on still
Nature and her beauty has done these things for me and you.
A poem I wrote in third grade when the world was perfect and special, and a happy place for me. Before I learned that along with all that happiness sometimes comes sadness. With hope comes despair. and that after birth comes death.
No one knows why there is so much sorrow in the world or why life seems to get so hard. Why sometimes life sucks the living breathe out of you.
No one knows why winter seems so long and cold and harsh sad and dreary.
But we do know that Spring is a sign of rebirth . A sign of God's love for us. For with the horror of Good Friday,comes the joyous triumph of Easter.
In spring we seem to notice and are more joyous about a birth of a baby and wedding. And even the sting of death is just a tiny bit less painful when the sun shines so bright it can warm your soul.
So hold on a little longer ,I know the weather is bleak for many of you .But Spring is coming ,with its beautiful flowers and signs of love .
