Spring Promise: Happy Easter!

Spring Promise

by Iris W. Bray
Illustrated by Kim Fritzemeier

Tender buds on shrub and tree
Boast of spring's bright victory.


Dormant seeds beneath Earth's floor


Leap from darkness through life's door.


The world has changed its winter scene


To fertile fields with glint of green.


Blossoms burst to meet the sun -
The glad awakening has begun!


Somewhere beneath Death's winter sleep
Mortals too wake from the deep -

(sunset)

For Christ arose that he might bring
His promise of eternal Spring!

(sunrise)

Wishing you a Happy and Blessed Easter from
The County Line!
