Springtime in My Heart




Springtime in my heart – Lord –
Stirring breeze melts tedious freeze –
Your love like sun rays warms my heart –
My spirit leaps to treetop suites –
Love nest there waits –
In You I rest

By Carol Ann Hoel © March 6, 2013


Song of Solomon 2:10-13 – The Bible – (KJV) – My beloved spoke, and said unto me, Rise up, my love, my fair one, and come away. For, lo, the winter is past, the rain is over and gone; the flowers appear on the earth; the time of the singing of birds is come, and the voice of the turtle is heard in our land; the fig tree putteth forth her green figs, and the vines with the tender grape give a good smell. Arise, my love, my fair one, and come away.

Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 – The Bible (KJV) – To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted; a time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; a time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance; a time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing; a time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away; a time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak; a time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.

    So glad to find you here once again, Carol Ann. I’m sure your days are still lonely but it’s good to read that warmth is beginning to permeate the season of bleakness. Your poetry is so expressive! I hope you find writing it is also therapeutic and will be back here often to share it during this new season.
