Time


You’re a man, you’ve seen the world––
The beauty and the wonder and the power, 
The shape of things, their colors, lights and shades, 
Changes, surprises–– And God made it all!
Robert Browning

Time
By Elece Hollis

Time for vases of daffodils on the windowsill.
Time for filling the hummingbird feeders.
Time for sunny warmer days and thunder-stormy evenings.
Time for treefrogs singing after rain.
Time for listening for the returning song of the scissortail.
Time for goldfinches bright yellow in the dandelion patches.
Time to start mowing grass.
Time for azaleas blooming in the park.
Time for bumblebees investigating the first roses.
Time to eat asparagus for supper.
Time for watching the sunset from the porch swing.
Time for wonder. Time for renewal.
Time for dogwood.
