A Blessing 03:02
It is the first mild day of March: Each minute sweeter than before The redbreast sings from the tall larch That stands beside our door. There is a blessing in the air, Which seems a sense of joy to yield To the bare trees, and mountains bare, And grass in the green field.
2.
Early Bird 01:53
small yellow bunches bring quiet healing of spring gifts from earth mother
3.
The Far-Farers The broad sun, The bright day: White sails On the blue bay: The far-farers Draw away. Light the fires And close the door. To the old homes, To the loved shore, The far-farers Return no more.
4.
growing trees for love communities are rising planting seeds for hope
5.
The Cuckoo 03:16
The cuckoo, she's a pretty bird, she sings as she flies She brings us good tidings he tells us no lies She sucketh white flowers to make her voice clear And the more she sings cuckoo The summer draws near
6.
end of day relief i thank the trees for the wood and these paper prints
7.
The crocus, while the days are dark, Unfolds its saffron sheen; At April's touch the crudest bark Discovers gems of green. Then sleep the seasons, full of might; While slowly swells the pod And rounds the peach, and in the night The mushroom bursts the sod. The winter falls; the frozen rut Is bound with silver bars; The snowdrift heaps against the hut, And night is pierced with stars.

Sweet Water 01:51
from strong silver birch branch bending for sap to flow two ceramic cups
