Hints

Snowdrop buds appear,
hints of beauty yet to come.
Winter darkness fades.

Debutantes

Welcome
Spring’s harbingers.
Heads bowed shyly,
white-clad debutantes cluster.
Snowdrops.

January Joy 23

Slowly unfurling,
white dots
on the lawn,
snowdrops.

January Joy 11

No snow,
but snowdrops
pushing through the lawn,
buds still furled.
More joy in store
when they finally
unfurl.

Triumph

Drab winter slowly yields.
Snowdrops fade, crocus come and go,
all around new growth erupts
and over all the daffodil
trumpets in triumph.

Resilient

Resilient snowdrops,
drooped with frost this morning,
now perk up their heads once more.

Whisperings

White spots on the lawn
show where snowdrops
will soon bloom.
Whisperings of Spring.

Passing Time

Snowdrop and crocus,
springtime blooms.
Daffodil and tulip
follow soon.
Nature’s clock ticks,
bright colours chime
as the season shifts
with passing time.

Defiance

Snowdrops push
through saturated ground,
white heads bobbing
defiantly.

Unfrozen

Silent bells,
demurely proud as vestal virgins,
after the frost and snow have gone,
unfrozen snowdrops,
undefeated.
