The first snowdrop

image

The herald of spring

Pops its head out

of its earthy bed.

Brings hope to my heart

The little white head

Nodding in pale sunlight

As the soil softens

Giving life from those gone before

Colour seeps back

Into the world

A blade at a time

Cutting through the darkness
