S3 E2: Spring Morning by Marion Strobel

Spring is Coming!

On a beautiful spring morning, the sun is shining brightly and the birds are singing a cheerful song. The grass is a lush green and the trees are blooming with vibrant colors. The air is fresh and fragrant with the scent of flowers. The sky is a brilliant blue, and the clouds are white and fluffy. Everything is alive with the promise of a new day and the hope of a better tomorrow. The world is full of beauty and potential, and it is a joy to be alive and witness it all.

Spring Morning by Marion Strobel

O day—if I could cup my hands and drink of you,
And make this shining wonder be
A part of me!
O day! O day!
You lift and sway your colors on the sky
Till I am crushed with beauty. Why is there
More of reeling sunlit air
Than I can breathe? Why is there sound
In silence? Why is a singing wound
About each hour?
And perfume when there is no flower?
O day! O Day! How may I press
Nearer to loveliness?

    1. They were the most excellent back-up singers, weren’t they? In the midst of the honking, cawing and quacking, there is a lone heron in this community that always presents a regal, sophisticated appearance before heading off into the sky.

    1. Winter has tried to make a comeback here in Vancouver, Mary Jo! We had a huge snowstorm over the weekend. But Spring is moving things along and reminding Winter that there are other places that need Winter’s chill. The snowdrops have arrived and I’m looking for the coming of daffodils. The green shoots are rising even as the snow melts. So it goes with all transitions – saying goodbye and hello at the same time is always a profound moment. Many thanks for your visit and comments. Hugs!
