Winter in Wiltshire


Today its snowing but then I remember that it's almost time for the Blossom....and I'm smiling.

I wrote WINTER in 1984.I hope it will make you smile.

WINTER


As the earth lies silently waiting
beneath its frozen veil,
Remember the flowers
you thought had died last year,
will soon break through again.

Just as the earth has its seasons
so mankind you have yours.
Your hopes you think have died for good
are merely taking their course.

So don't despair for the hopes
you planted long ago,
they will break through
allow them time to grow.

The winter may seem bleak and cruel,
and your life may seem bare just now,
only watch the earth in the spring again
and the trees with new buds on their bough.

The miracle of life is here every day,
yet you feel winter hides it from you.
Listen - the next time the north wind blows,
try and hear what she wants you to.

That's the caller's voice
to the sleeping earth,
to stir her from her rest,
and start the seeds she's nurturing there:

Soon - she'll nurse them on her breast.
Norma.

(Ecc 3:1 - There is a time for everything and a
season for every activity under heaven.)

"One thing that struck me was the stripping of ego in the work. Most of us have a comfy ego façade, but weakness and disease tore Katherine’s away. The poems in Be Loved Beloved come from the heart."
