Song and Dance

Sing a song of seasons,
Something bright in all,
Flowers in the summer;
Fires in the fall.
Robert Louis Stevenson

Song and Dance
By C. Elece Hollis

Come Summer late with marigolds, with zinnias, and with cosmos
Splash the green with colors like the sunset from the hill
Come Summer, sing of Autumn—prepare us for her visit
Let us store up warmth and light within our souls—until

We can dance the dance of winter;
We can shout the joy of spring!
We can wait for seasons changing—passing
Learn to trust what God will bring.

While the earth remains, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, 
and summer and winter, and day and night will not cease.
Genesis  8:22 nkjv
