Stripped in my winter

24 Apr 2022 | Holy Spirit | 0 comments

The summer leaves fall from the trees.

The branches stark and naked against a grey sky,

Yet one day the sap will rise again.

You, Lord, will send the Spirit

Rushing through our veins,

And there will be flowers and fruit

And shade on a summer’s day.


Ian Bunting (1933- ), Chester-le-Street, Winter 1980.
