Waiting for Spring
The wind blows cold this mid-March day.
The birds have tucked their wings away
To wait until the signs of spring
Encourage them again to sing.
This winter’s grip seems strong and fierce,
With cold that bites and winds that pierce
Through bundled layers. Yet I know
That sun will long outlast the snow.
And soon enough the winds will change,
The atmosphere will rearrange.
Then on the wings of robins borne,
Spring will arrive, both wet and warm.
For God’s ordained the seasons, too.
Each one will come as it is due.
So as I wait for warmer days,
I’ll bundle up, and give God praise.
