Life begins; so tiny.
Life begins; so small.
Life begins to push on through,
Till small soon turns to tall.
Winter; tired, and overworked,
Past time to slope off home,
Hauls wrinkled blankets way up high,
Drifts, weary, through the gloam.
Beneath the damp & dormancy,
Awakenings start to trickle,
Hidden deep from prying eyes,
Life’s expectations, fickle.
Shoots break through the soft, brown earth,
Twigs are filled with buds,
Fresh rain & sun hold tending hands,
To nourish Spring’s new studs.
Each mini package firmly wrapped,
Gifts brand new breaking dawns,
Unfurling, gently, in full view,
A brand new season spawns!
Exploding colours breach the grey,
Fires & hearts pulsating,
Creatures launching Cupid’s bow,
Where Juliet lies waiting.
Gone the musty scent of death,
Of vegetation crying,
Breathe new life, smell blossom, light,
Of happy Springtime wakening!
