Promise of Spring

22 Nov

What happened to the promise of Spring,

New era new life, a new beginning.

New leaves grow on the old tree,

New leaves young and free.

What happened to the promise of Spring,

Lamb lead to the slaughter,

Dream left unfulfilled,

Saviour to oppressor,

The nascent shoot of hope killed.

Withered on the vine,

Has the promise of spring perished in the winter cold,

Perished before its time?
