The days are lighter for longer
Stretching of the light
There is just a fraction of warmth in the midday sun,
A hint of spring as the days begin to stretch their light.
On this sunrise, you can see winters work is not yet done,
From the deep frost that it laid down during the night.
This landscape of frost is glistening in the early dawn,
Winter is firmly in command at the start of this new day.
But from the white bells of the snowdrops, growing in the lawn,
Spring is letting us know that it is not too far away.
Upon the branches, tips of the first buds are appearing,
Hinting to winter that it’s time to pack its bags and go.
The stretching of the light tells us that spring is nearing,
And that soon the blossoms of the spring will be on show.
