A message of hope from the Canopy: Learn from the changing seasons

The forest has spoken. This weekend, this leaf, dressed in gentle shades of autumn, drifted down from the forest canopy in the Island Nature Reserve near Port Elizabeth in South Africa. The leaf’s message was clear: “Autumn is here. Winter for all of us is not far off. But remember. After the winter will come the spring and then the warmth of another summer. Learn from me, a humble leaf. Learn the lesson of the seasons. The winter of this Covid will pass too. Have faith in the passage of time. Rest assured. A new day is coming for us all.”

In the darkness before dawn

In the darkness before dawn

The birds begin to sing

With you by my side I can hear

*

In the middle of the winter

Comes promise of the spring

With you by my side I can fly

*

In the depths of my blackness

I see the birth of day

With you by my side I can fly
