A Poem for Spring

(Copyright © 2004 Sharon Joy Gramling)

Butterflies brightly bring new offerings

of newness of life to Jesus the King.

He transforms us and forms us afresh and anew

and brings to new dawning the fragrance of youth

wrapped around us in splendor, fresh vigor and vim;

our new wings dry strong in the image of Him

Who - with tenderness, meaning, purpose, and power

calls forth our new butterfly unto the flower

to feed and adorn it, fly free and spread seed;

yes, He Who commands us will meet every need

through our season of life and still through to the end

’til we’re caught up to greet Him in His Holy Wind

with new lives all around us, below and above,

to the Throne that surrounds us with pervading LOVE

where sits God The Most High, Who also looks low

upon His winged beauties wherever we go.

Praise to Holy Father and to Holy Son

and to Holy Spirit, the Three Who are One;

praise He Who leads butterflies forth from cocoon,

and died for our new life, and IS coming soon!

Inspired by His Goodness,
Daddy's Girl

"... fervent in spirit, serving the Lord."
(Romans 12:11b)
