song of spring

Posted: April 8th, 2011 | Filed under: life | Tags: | 8 Comments »

let today be the day that you leave yesterday behind
let the birds tell you that new has arrived
let your body sway to what only tulips can hear
Spring sings of hope finally drawn near

look up from your toes once covered in shame
look up from your legs once crippled and lame
look up to meet eyes and smile the new
look up and you’ll find hope’s there for you, too

i know you’ve been broken, you cry in your sleep
i know you feel naked, chaff stripped from the wheat
naked is innocence, the lies are all gone
truth is the hope and Spring is your song.

Get up, my dear friend, fair and beautiful lover—come to me! Look around you: Winter is over; the winter rains are over, gone! Spring flowers are in blossom all over. The whole world’s a choir—and singing! Spring warblers are filling the forest with sweet arpeggios. Lilacs are exuberantly purple and perfumed, and cherry trees fragrant with blossoms. Oh, get up, dear friend, my fair and beautiful lover—come to me! Come, my shy and modest dove— leave your seclusion, come out in the open. Let me see your face, let me hear your voice. For your voice is soothing and your face is ravishing. -Song of Solomon 2:10-14

    Your poem is lovely!

    Song of Solomon 2:10-14 is one of my very favorite passages.

    There was a time in my life when all that was once lovely and beautiful felt destroyed and dead. But…eventually…"spring" came and I saw new life grow. Finally…hope returned!
