And here is a poem, written by a member of our congregation, Pat Mackie:


At least I saw the Spring


If I could take one good thing

From this time of fear and pain

It would be that I have seen the Spring

As I walked each country lane.


I have seen the swaying bluebells

In a warm and gentle breeze

The changing colours daily

Of our great, majestic trees.


The colours of the wildflowers

Such simple beauty seen

As one by one they came to view

Pink, yellow, blue and green


And most of all the birdsong

Oh! What can I say?

To hear that chorus in the trees

Through April into May.


My worries seemed to fade away

For a moment I was calm

For God's pure beauty of the Spring

Was to my heart a balm.


So thank you God for this great gift

And as blossom fills the air

I'll think of those in sickness

And say a silent prayer.


So through these times of troubles

When church bells couldn't ring

At least I found one good thing

At least I saw the Spring.
