365 Gratitude Project – Day 110: Renewal

April 20, 2017

Yes, it’s another Spring post.  Usually my favorite season is Winter – I love the cold, crisp air, the smell of wood smoke, the crunch of frost on the ground and the diamond glitter on tree branches and grass blades. But this year I can’t get enough of Spring. Each day brings more loveliness in nature, new buds opening and blooming and more green spreading and coloring in the bare branches. My early morning walks around the Zoo grounds have been an exercise of quiet solitude and appreciation for the natural world around me, each day enveloping me in the rising scent of honeysuckle and clematis and the ever increasing calls of song birds – it’s definitely Spring there! I’m filled with gratitude to be able to share in this waking up of the earth this year.

Isn’t It Reassuring

this is a piece I remember singing in 7th grade, but can’t seem to find the composer, lyricist or arranger

Isn’t it reassuring? Watching the buds appear?
Isn’t it great? Spring to await!
Watchin’ the landscape rejuvenate!
Oh, d
oesn’t it lift your spirit? Doesn’t make you glad?
Isn’t it keen? Viewin’ the scene!
Watchin’ the grass turn green!

The winter’s gone now and the snow!
Seeds burstin’ below!
Cold’s over at last!
And everything’s starting to grow!

Doesn’t it make you happy? Doesn’t it make you see?
Part of the plan, given to man,
ever since time began?
But nevertheless, I can confess, just between you and me,
That it’s good to see it happening, so nice to see it happening
So great to see it happening

Anew! Anew!
And reassuring too!
