Wordsworth, I Am Not

Today for a little something different, I am choosing #4 from Mama Kat's writing prompts and trying my hand at a little poetry.  Don't get too excited ... there's a reason why I write essays. :)

Here goes!

Hello, Spring, so glad you've come!
Only the warm sunshine is enough to make me want to
Poke my little head out and have a look around.
Everywhere my little daffodil eyes look, I see green.

.. and ...

Heaven answered our need for a Savior,
Opened wide His arms to die on a cross,
Poured out His life so that we can live.
Easter is a celebration of spring ... eternal.

Two wonderful reasons I love Spring! :)

The hope of picnics, park dates, evening walks and toasty sunshine on my face with every fresh little green bud that pushes its way through the dead, drab brownness of winter past.

The hope of peace, faith and love through the powerful and miraculous resurrection of our Lord, Savior and Friend ... a bright light of redemption shining in the dark dullness of our hard world.

I hope for a little hope for you today ...

  1. Hi I am visiting from SITS I do LOVE your poem. I am a big wordsworth fan I actually went to his birth place in England last summer it was great. You did a great job on your poem

  2. I love both of your poems! You're a braver soul than me... :-D

  3. Very nice! 2 wonderful reasons to enjoy or celebrate Spring.
    I used this beginning letter thing in our Christmas card last year spelling out MERRY CHRISTMAS--highlighting some of our year's happenings.

    I'm trying to get back into writing some poetry, too. It takes some quiet time.
