Basking in the warmth of her sunshine

I walked awhile with March

Dreaming of hot summer days

Until she led me through a glen

Where winds blew cold

Thru shaded trees

Where Winter

Hid Spring’s



It was one of those March days when the sun shines hot and the wind blows cold: when it is summer in the light, and winter in the shade. —Charles Dickens

Finding Peace

I love the heat of the warm June sun!
It saturates my skin like a sauna,
Melting away the cares of the day.
Soon,  I join the familiar fauna
Under the old oak tree,
To rest in the shade.
Such a peaceful June day,
The Lord God has made!

June’s Arrival

Favored month of mine,
You arrived yesterday In a burst of sunshine.
Bringing sun to replace the shade,
Such an entrance you made!
The sight of you warmed my heart.
I can’t wait for our visit to start.
