“Winter Snowdrops” by Rejetta Morse

As snow falls from the cloudy skies

the cold winter winds blow

as tiny snowdrops rest below

the soft blanket of snow.

Soon at the bright morning sunrise

cold waters start to flow

from snow that melts above the bulbs

that rest below the snow.

As soon as water wakens them

their sharp green leaves arise

and cuts through frozen snow – they climb –

below the bright sunrise.

Now with a willing heart they weave

their tiny silky heads

through the deep snow – they rise and peek –

their crowns above their beds.

As heat rises from their bodies

the snow melts where they stand

and breathes sweet fragrance of the spring

over the wintry land.

Then they stretch their long green arms

with tiny bells to ring

with white blossoms that dangles from

their arms to welcome spring.

They nod their heads and take a bow

and ring a joyful tune.

As nature wakens as they ring:

“Springtime will be here soon.”

Song of Solomon 2:12

The flowers appear on the earth . . .

    A beautiful poem about one of my favorite flowers! The snowdrop is a harbinger of spring, and more importantly of hope in a frozen and hard terrain! I have tried to grow them (from bulbs) for several years. They seem to struggle, but still I keep watching and hoping. This year, I have three snowdrop plants!
