Time to Make a Change

Winter gusts subside,
Pleasant sunlight pours inside,
Welcome after cold.

Snow and ice grow old.
This peek must be a promise.
Don't be a "Doubting Thomas".

Ice and snow must end.
Bitter winter we rescind!
Traded for warm light.

Sun a timely sight.
Nature's plan unfolds before
Spring can open doors.
