by Paul Mayes Jamar
I see the frost outside, Shining in a green field, On the roof, moisture slides, Dripping the melted chill. The Sun beams down, Upon the icy grass, Slowly thawing the ground, As soon as it will all pass. The cold retreats a way, The last reminder of the night, Defeated by the Sun’s rays, As a new day comes into sight. So is our Jesus Christ, Melting the hearts of pure ice, Driving the cold so wise, Replacing it with warmth to suffice. The Sun reflects upon it all, Brighter than before it shines, Our Jesus brightens as we call, Him into our hearts in Winter times.
