Spring’s Promise

The early morning remains shrouded in darkness outside the window as I wait in the barn for the purest of magic–creation.  With much straining, the tiny baby is pushed into the cold world with labored contractions.  I anxiously wait to hear the first bleating before his mother licks him dry, talking softly as her tongue caresses the newborn.  Only minutes pass before he begins nursing.  I sigh in relief at his successful arrival.


miracle of birth
suckles from his mother’s teat
spring’s promise arrives
