Renewal Sang

Renewal Sang

She’d lost her raiment in the fall
Then stood, so bare, against it all
As freezing winds of bitter change
Whipped hard against her stark remains
The warmth of spring called to rewind
Its bud of green inside her mind
A song of hope replayed the dance
Renewal sang of sweet romance
And as the icy flakes of snow
Fell hard to cover long ago
She hung her head as if to weep
With lifted arms, resigned to sleep
She carried whispered prayers along
Inside her limbs – a winsome song
For all to hear when short the day
That chills the bones within the fray
Of winter’s still, white resting place
The only sound of springtime’s grace
