I See Spring! 8-30-15

(Four generations: Lucy Ellen Gander, Sarah Evaline Palmer (standing),
Susanna Sanborn, Katherine Jadwin, circa 1874. Sarah is Nathan Gander's wife.)

"With picture faded on the wall -
oh, who could understand it all?

For yesterday began the spring
when we could dance and we could sing.

But faded now, our lively songs
with grasses dead and flowers gone.
---
Today I stand somewhat dismayed.
and of tomorrow, am afraid.

My wrinkled face now bears a frown.
I find the whole world up-side-down.

From government to businesses -
the world is busy, all abuzz.

The love of money, Satan's hook.
What's with the envy?  Take a look!

In all the world, who understands?
Does love for money stain our hands?
---
Some day in Heaven, happily -
I'll sing God's praises out with glee!

Who cares of clothes or car I drive?
I am with Him and am alive!

Today, I see deception's sting -
but of tomorrow, I see spring!

With picture faded on the wall -
oh, who would understand it all?
