I Heard Today A Song - Week 16
I heard today, a song - before early dawn
before the light of the stars had withdrawn,
before the sun could his morning glory show
by casting his golden light upon the snow.
I smiled in surprise at this bright, cheerful song
that rang out in the bleakness of winter morn,
The song of returning, the song of his quest,
a covenant of mates as they built their nest.
A song for the hopeful to rise up and sing.
A song of the future our hard work can bring.
A promise that winter,must give way to spring.
