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 . . .
