Arise My Love
קומי לך רעיתי יפתי ולכי לך כי הנה הסתו עבר הגשׁם חלף הלך לו הנצנים נראו בּארץ
The “Song of Solomon” also known as “The Song of Songs” is about the beauty of love and the beauty of spring. “Arise my love and come away for lo the winter is over and gone, the rains are past and the flowers appear on the earth.” (ch 2: v 11,12)
Each day of spring we are treated to gorgeous, vivid flowers, budding leaves, and the perfume of blossoming trees. Hearing cardinals, red winged blackbirds, and seeing robins resting in branches is a joy.
So go outside, even if it’s grey, and enjoy the new buds around you. And enjoy the colour- even if it’s from dandelions. Springtime is a gift and it doesn’t last long!
By the way, I will be giving a presentation at The Pomegranate Guild on positive, constructive criticism followed by a workshop on accordion fold books. The meeting is on Wednesday May 20, 2015 at 7:00 p.m. Temple Sinai, 100 Wilson Ave., Toronto, Ontario.
