Spring's Resurrection

 
In spring the resurrection from winter’s cold tomb
Brings new life once again as flowers start to bloom.
All creation sings a joyous song of spring
As renewal of life brings fresh life to everything.

The earth’s crust is cracked by a hidden power,
And what emerges is a stem, leaf and flower.
The icy grave of winter where no life can be seen
Transforms into a vibrant, living carpet of green.

Fresh hope arrives with the springtime air
So our lives that once had seemed lifeless and bare,
Like the earth to which fresh life returns,
Can find the renewal for which the soul yearns.

Spring’s resurrection coincides with Easter too –
All life that has ended God is able to renew.
Christ conquered death, there’s no longer separation,
And we can join in singing the song of creation.

Excerpt from A Symphony of Seasons by Connie Arnold 

Wishing you a wonderful, blessed Easter and beautiful spring!
