Spring Snow


Spring has come today
And the Maiden comes into
The world of life pregnant
With Winter’s final birthing.

The seeding of new life flows
White and heavy in its
Presence as greening’s
Warmth meets Winter’s cold.

This is not the heralding of gentle
Spring I have been anticipating.

This is the final good bye
To Winter’s white hold.


Sparkling icy flakes coating
Grass that is just awakening
Leafy branches heavy with
Frosty icing.


Just wait it won’t be long now
Snow covered trees will bloom
With greenery.

White carpeted land will awaken
Into a kaleidoscope of flowering

Spring will take hold and the
Maiden’s tears will flow as warm
Rain quickening everything they touch.
