The Wisdom Of Winter Oh the memories of Spring much more the sweeter grow, when you are at Autumn’s end and faced with Winter’s snow. Oh the new and budding things that make for Spring’s delight, fast mature in Summer’s day to fade in Autumn’s night. Oh that it was Spring again, life pulsating anew; hope dancing in its gentle breeze and promise in its dew! Oh that it was Spring again, I’d more the wiser be, and linger longer on its path of sweet simplicity! But one cannot be wise in Spring for it’s a time to dream; and only Winter sees the truth of every season’s scheme. Sandra M.

As refreshing as a spring rain with its promise of renewal. The beauty of spring is captured in the energy of the words, especially when one is familiar with this wondrous season. Emile. #7
