Ode to Winter Green

Author:

After facing enormous difficulties, I moved across the country. There, I spent the next few years focusing on healing.

ode-to-winter-green

The lovely trees, so full of green

Even though tis wintertime

I wonder what will come this spring

Such beauty you cannot describe

These trees whisper a sweet melody

A song of hope and love

They offer a sense of security

That may only come from above

I look at the world that now surrounds me

So different from where I have been

No longer in prison, I am set free

Though pain grips my heart now and then

I know not where I found strength to survive

Blessed to have made it through

Thankful for green, I feel so alive

Discovering a life fresh and new
