The sun is shining, birds gather to sing, and spring is finally here. This morning, my heart is a bit lighter; my mind a bit clearer. I can push world events away for just a little while. I can revel in the time when the earth becomes renewed. The woodland animals are coming out of their winter stupor. I am beginning to feel a little more hopeful. I too can turn my face to the sunshine and feel restored. It is a day to celebrate. Go out into nature, find beauty, and rejoice.
A little song to celebrate this day and the earth’s resilience. Welcome spring!
Awaken the Peas Upon the earth, the sun shines down Each ray, a warm delight. Each tiny seed rests and waits Until the time is right. The sun’s steady light Begins to warm and spread, Awakening each little seed From its frosty bed. Awaken the peas from their round green beds Remind them spring is coming, Tell each raindrop to kiss their heads And set the bees a-humming.
