Today it finally happened
across melting landscape
thick, trickling, tense
shrinking from mounds to
slush under creaking snowshoes;
“He sends out His command to the earth;
His word runs very swiftly.
He gives snow like wool;
He scatters the frost like ashes;
He casts out His hail like morsels;
Who can stand before His cold?
He sends out His word and melts them;
He causes His wind to blow, and the waters flow.”Psalm 147:15-18
