It is not time for the roses to bloom

It is not time for the roses to bloom, 
The wind whistles a chilly melody,
Clouds veiling the scarlet moon,
Grass field beneath snow’s custody, 
And yet, a rose I see, everyday. 
 
Her scent fills the blank page, 
The pipe’s smoke refuses to pine,
Silent night seals the cottage, 
Candlelight brighter than sunshine,
And yet, a rose I see, everyday. 
 
I sleep and wait spring to come, 
alike the bees in their hive,
The snowman in his glass dome
longing to be shaken alive, 
And yet, a rose I see, everyday. 
 
There must be flowers on winter, 
the gardens may be lost again,
the dragon winged sprinter
Is quiet, bounded by a frost chain,
And yet, a rose I see, everyday. 
 
The ice is cracking on the lake, 
Near the aspen tree mound. 
A squirrel is startled awake 
By the howling wolf sound, 
And yet, a rose I see, everyday. 
 
A rose I see, everyday, and yet,
in her flowerbed she stays,
the petals I can kiss and pet,
even if her season is faraway, 
because, a rose I seek, everyday.
