Like a surly spoiled child giving up his toy ship,

The dirty snow grudgingly  gives ground,

Is forced  back and releases soiled  grip,

Revealing crocus ghost-shoots pale and round.

Air is mild like a woman’s soft breath

Feeding  life anew to the tree’s bare  skeleton 

Arms,  fresh-wrested from death:

And raising each hard green bud-scion. 

River free at last from immobility:

Giant ice-shards’  gaunt mute motion 
In the flowing waters of felicity,

Singing its joyful  way to the  ocean.

    I love the comparison of the dirty snow to the spoiled child, Syd. Quite an original and imaginative write on the onset of spring! Can see so clearly the river turning from ice to water again. Awesome! Love, carolyn
