The winter has been unforgiving,
Cold and bleak,
Leaving spirits dampened and hope diminished.
There is change in the air, though;
I feel it in my bones, can taste it upon my lips.
Mother Earth stretches and yawns,
Her sweet breath whispering words of encouragement to a slumbering land;
Wake, my children, the time has come to rise up!
No matter what darkness awaits, the light will always shine through. This is my promise to you;
