Winter has slain,

Winter has slain,
there’s death,
snow fall;
layered leaves
strangled grass,
slow thaw-
till new life
rise these
from seeds-
the wind dashes,
the sunlight

Wrong Affirmation

There you are a-swayin’
to your random lullabies;
sing of peace, spring rainin’
to stifle fearful cries.

The words aren’t right, dig deep-
nothing in unblinking sky;
His Word, so fresh will keep,
free, no need to buy.
