Ode To A Snowdrop


Winter’s cold bites nose and ear
Winter’s sky, dark, presses down
Winter’s winds rake tree and field
Winter’s earth in hues of brown

Soft green leaf when came you here,
Soft green leaf, through winter’s grime?
Soft green leaf, you bring us hope,
Soft green leaf, is now the time?

Pale white bloom lift up your face.
Pale white bloom your candle flame,
Pale white boom, burn bright, and thus,
Pale white bloom, fierce winter tame.
