Something Wonderful

Since St. Patrick’s Day is here, fresh as the green grass that will soon be sprouting, I thought we’d all enjoy the warm glow of a traditional Gaelic blessing:

May The Road
Rise Up To Meet You

May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face;
the rains fall soft upon your fields
and until we meet again,
may God hold you in the palm of His hand.

    May the nor’easter bid goodbye.
    May the spell of freeze be broken.
    May the storm be silenced.

    May my fallen cherry tree be replanted.
    May birds return to sing blossom’s glory.
    May bees hum again my memory.

    May God uplift hope in life cycle always.

    March Nor’easter
    Bing Chang – 3/12/2018

    One nor’easter after another nor’easter
    Brought upon neighborhoods disaster.
    Wet snow cast everywhere a spell of freeze.
    Whirlwind downed lamp posts and trees.

    O my cherry tree, the relentless storm disdained your despair.
    Your exposed roots wept bitter tears and cursed in the air.
    Once so full of blossom, you embraced birds to sing your glory.
    Your fragrance vanished, and no more bees hum my memory.
    Resonating with your pains, for a long time my sorrow I will bear.
    Deep in the winter, will spring be far behind? I say my prayer.

    • Dear Bing,

      Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful poems!

      They really speak with such heart to the resilience of

      trees and nature in the face of wind and storm — so

      important a quality for us all to cultivate.

      Write on,
