SPRING PRAISE SONG
ringing a song in dawn breeze,
the woods alive with wildflowers,
white-tailed deer leaping over fences.
Praise to the heavenly scent
of fresh-turned dirt,
sowing seeds in the garden,
bringing hope, a new life.
Praise to the bluebird
gathering twigs for a nest,
sheep clouds flocking
cobalt skies above Cherry Mountain.
Praise to the spring morning,
the tickle of fresh green grass
against bare feet. Bradford
pear trees offering ice-cream cones.
The Bradford pear trees are blooming here in the Blue Ridge Mountains. They are beautiful and look like snow shimmering on the mountaintops and along the country lanes. It's beginning to look a lot like spring!
