A Sonnet for Spring!
My soul hath reawakened in Thy light;
Encouraged by Thy shifting move t’ward Spring.
Rekindled in Thy Omnipresent Might!
Intuitive in all that nature brings.
Rebirth! It reaches to our very soul;
Rejuvenating life and limb and heart.
Reminding us that He Whom We Extol
Shares blessings in the form of nature’s art.
Be still – and hark the heralding of time;
As eons pass with whispers on the wind.
An ever-changing landscape – so sublime…
With life-restoring light - that’s never dimmed.
To Thee – we reaffirm our grateful love…
Rejoicing in Thy blessings - High Above.
**The English (or Shakespearean) Sonnet:
