Snowdrops, the heralds of spring (poem)

11 Feb

They fight for our spring

Snowdrops, the heralds of spring

Beneath the cold winter ground, the snowdrops start growing,
Long before spring begins, their dark green tips start showing.
Defying those frosty mornings, ignoring all the cold,
Their small tips showing when no other flowers are so bold.

Defying winters grasp upon the land all around,
Shouting out clearly to all that spring will soon be found.
They may face the frost upon them, a snow flurry or two,
But those leaves keep pushing up, as more come into view.

Winter may still be here, but the snowdrops are on their way,
Fighting up through the ground, the snowdrops are here to stay.
Winter must soon surrender, accepting that spring has won,
As more spring flowers follow what the snowdrops have begun.
