Over a year ago, MamaPea hooked me in to the fun. Now it's my turn.
Despair comes all too easy--grim and goth and oh-so-hip--
Cynicism is the fashion of the day.
Pollyannas make folks queasy: "Darken up, Girl! Get a grip!"
But I declare: I'm going out to play.
Hope is harder. How it stretches the weak muscles of the mind.
How we ache with angst as spirits reach and grow!
How we wonder, wander, bend as our fashioned fears unwind,
Giving grace the shape of all the seeds we sow.
Now's the season for beginnings. Life's returning with the sun.
Time to laugh in fear's false face; be a creator!
