It came, a late winter snow,
Not wanting its grip to let go.
But spring had begun,
Wanting its turn to run.
Buds are appearing,
As the snow is nearing.
Gently it falls, spreading white flakes,
A little is all it takes.
Saying I will help you grow,
One last time, before I must go.
Each season has a time,
I pass over to you, now take your turn to shine.
Sugar Snow by Denise L. Calandra
This photo was taken in April. The buds were just blooming. Along came some snow, softly covering the new flowers. It took a very pretty picture. It reminded me of a Bible verse talking about the seasons. Of course, that verse is Ecclesiastes 3:1:
“To everything there is a season, A time for every purpose under heaven.” NKJV
Even if seasons overlap a little, they do each have their own time and purpose. It is nice we get to enjoy them.
