What glorious weather we had for the Easter days. It reminded me of younger days when we were convinced that the sun danced in the sky on Easter Sunday morning. It makes such a difference to wake up to the sun streaming in the window. Having had the pleasure of seeing all my grandchildren playing outdoors on a warm Easter Sunday was a sure sign of a resurrection for me! The  turf machines are busy these days too which is a sign of the year moving on into summer.

Sounds of Summer

 Rocking in my garden seat

Creaking gently to and fro

Watching life continuing on

Like a stream in constant flow.

Listening to the chirping birds

Busy at their daily tasks

The leaves are whispering in the breeze

A honeybee goes buzzing past.

A tractor drones in a neighbour’s field

Boasting of a busy day

Taking advantage of the sun

Cutting silage, turning hay.

A cow concerned for her calf

Calls him back with a gentle moo

The clothes are flapping on the line

Peaceful times like this are few.

Children play out on the lawn

Sending out their squeals of joy

Laughing, singing, cheering on

Their playmates in a rugby try.

I close my eyes to appreciate

The restful sounds that I can hear

It’s easy to believe in God

When His presence is so near!
