The sun of righteousness
With healing in its wings.
You shall go leaping
Like calves from the stall. (Mal. 4:2)
Spring puts rebirth on display.
Daffodils and dogwoods,
Fields and forests,
All cry out: NEW!
And newborn calves
Spring forth from their stalls–
Waking into the light.
Pandemic winter has run long
And we’ve been cooped up
In all manner of stalls.
I bless you spirit to leap like a
With the assurance of new life
It might take a minute to find your legs.
We all wobble a bit before we dance.
