Rejoyce...............the Light returns....

Dark midwinter drapes

Are gradually withdrawn

Replaced with faint pastels

Through an emerging new dawn


Nature starts to awaken

From its long, heavy slumber

From an owl’s haunting voice

To a cardinal’s sweet number

WOW. Dearest heart, you know who this lovely mademoiselle looks like to me? Someone out there on Hilltop Hall...or a daughter or two...what a gorgeous painting and yes, like the rising and setting sun, spring will come again, then winter will enter stage left. May you and yours see many more stages of life and ENJOY IT ALL! MUCH LOVE, Nita
