The Souls of Spring's Children

softly, whispering
featherfalls on silent stone
winter, gravity

lost in the fog, birds
grieving morning voicelessly
remembering love

dead diamonds, ditches
glittering cold promises
fossil furrow froze

darkness, deepening
the womb and the grave hiding
secrets and shadows

in the ground, waiting
the souls of springs children sing
muffled lullabies

Thanks, Tim. I'm not keen on the dark but I like to think I put a glimpse of light in this.
