The proverbs of Solomon are wise:
    "Consider the ant
    who stores provisions in summer
    and gathers food in fall."

But when the calendar is a burden and not a blessing:
    Remember that springtime when people found the time
    to gather at Jesus's side
    while lilies bloomed on hillsides.

"Consider these lilies," he said.
    "How they grow. They toil not.
    Neither do they spin.
    Yet even Solomon in all his glory
    Was not blessed like one of these."

-J.M.L. (April 2021)
