A Psalm for Spring

And just when we think

winter won’t end, a sliver

of light, a bird’s flute solo,

a tentative poke of green.

 

Thank God for sun on skin,

the pink bud opening to lilac,

rains that gild the branches.

 

Praise God for dandelion yellow,

pale coral, indigo, speckled petal

and new leaf tinged with red.

For warmth and bikes, ice cream

and longer light. As You transform

the earth, touch us too with

resurrection joy.
