Spring Hopes, Eternal

After winter's cold drought
Before the summer's bright
Comes the weeks of waking
Diminished shades of night
Each new dew-drop sunrise
Finds lengthening, the light

Greens begin their creep
Hallowed - life's rebound
In this rouse from sleep
Jutting thru cold ground
Kissed and petal-crowned

Life finds its way
May bursts alive
Now the new day
Opens to thrive

Priceless this
Quiet change
Renewed bliss

Spring comes
Then cheers ...
