grace again

beneath the snow
the vernal seed
awaits the weeks
when cold recedes
through wintry term
that labors long
the seed forgives
so reaps the song
and bud and leaf
are surely sought
in springtide air
not near forgot
for sown we are
in Gardener’s grace
and grace again
reveals the place
and perfect time
of winter’s end
the greener days
His fullness sends


For from his fullness we have all received, grace upon grace. – John 1:16

  1. Beautiful! I often think I feel the seedlings growth and wonder about this when walking in my yard. Thank you for your lovely poem!
