Light after darkness

This poem echoes something of the Christian experience of resurrection and the hope of renewal, but I am not sure how much darkness is a necessary requisite for spiritual growth. The best I can say of the hard experiences in life, is that everything passes in time.

Help us to be the always hopeful
Gardeners of the spirit
Who know that without darkness
Nothing comes to birth
As without light
Nothing flowers.

May Sarton
