Poets’ Corner: This Season


Another spring appears.

Earth still here

altered beyond our grasp

but here still

with its robins and new hopes

in souls of love

longing so many generations

for the true world

carried within an enduring vision:

hands raised only to help and heal

bodies adored and glorified

hearts’ doors open wide

minds shining and joined

words and actions only of praise

Let us say to ourselves:

this spring is the season —

on this day

in this moment —

love’s vision is realized.
