Spring's Abundant Grace

This is such a beautiful time of year when the Forsythia bush explodes into glorious colour , brightening the dullest day ..... along with other beautiful reminders of Springtime.

With Arms Outstretched



The Forsythia bush is one of the first flowering scrubs of the season , easily recognized by its beautiful , bright yellow flowers , which appear before the leaves , as a promise that Spring truly is just around the corner .

It so gladdens my heart when the flowers break through , and so this is my tribute to this lovely plant ....one of the beauties of Springtime .


With arms outstretched towards the waiting sky - the

Beautiful Forsythia majestically lifts her golden branches high -

Like beams of sunlight - reaching up in rapturous bursts of glorious light -

As if to take us from the gloomy days - now past - into the

Heavenly realms - of pure delight - with

Songs of love renewed - and grievous

Wrongs - put right .

These Golden Rays



These golden rays - once brown and drab - then clothed within

Their winter's shroud - now sentinels of coming Spring - that

make the dullest heart seem glad - and want to laugh - and sing -

As they herald in the warmer days - cocooned in softest

Greens - with crocuses and daffodils - and other such like

Childlike things - of joyous thrills.

Spring's Abundant Grace




Who is there - who could not be blessed - when kissed

By Spring's abundant grace - and loveliness ? - that

Touches all with gentle calm - and soothes the

Beating breast - with passion's balm - and

Bids it - rest .


""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""

may you experience Love and Joy and Peace this Springtime ......

God bless you all ....
