The sloth of winter creeps in its lugubrious pace from day to barren day & all our yesterdays have dimmed to dusk within our snow-bound brains. Come out, wan sun! Stay a little longer, wax a little stronger till grimy snow relinquishes its place to seed or bud & Earth becomes a vivid green lit up with birdsong. Then life will once more strut onstage, a vibrant tale told by a toddler splashing through spring puddles, full of giggles & discoveries, signifying joy.
