Hope doesn’t float, nope, it springs. Around this time every year God reminds us he hasn’t given up on us yet.
“Hope springs eternal in the human breast
Man never is, but always to be blest
The soul, uneasy, and confin’d from home
Rests and expatiates in a life to come”

At the sound of his roar, sorrows will be no more

And when he shakes his mane, we shall have spring again.
