As God sends spring at winter’s end and Birds return to build again – as dark woods quicken into green beneath the kiss of April’s rain, so shall I wake one happy day and feel the pulse of life anew, looking out with fearless eyes towards a broader brighter view – discovering forgotten dreams and happiness long denied – learning how to live again, by many sorrows purified. As new sap rises in the bough and bursts the folded buds apart, so will hope bring forth her flowers and joy return unto my heart. -Strong

Walk softly on a woodland path, put each foot down with care,
for those who own this bit of world are around us everywhere.
Walk gently on a woodland path,for trespassers are we.
On land that owned by furry ones-bird butterfly and bee.

A time between and yet so dear, bright hopes of fall just past..While looking forward to the spring amidst the winter blast, for February is a span; it tells of things to be, a bridge connecting fall and spring we travel happily. – GA Schultz

A little while and then I will reclaim
Familiar places,edges with beads of gold,
And sight an orchard in a pool of flame.
Forgetful of the stinging sleet and cold.
And soon the birds will fill our hearts with song,
Pouring their cheer all day long.
