my photo

IN FEBRUARY

The frozen ground is broken
Where snowdrops raise their heads
And nod their tiny greeting
In glades and garden beds.

The frozen stream is melted
The white brook turns to brown
And foaming through the coppice
Flows helter skelter down.

The frozen air is golden
With February sun
The winter days are over
Oh, has the Spring begun?

Hi there Louise :) What a delightful gathering of snowdrops ~ you do know they have green hearts on the inside of their petals, don't you? ;) Look underneath and inside of the flower.

I haven't read that Snowdrop poem before and it is so lovely and fitting for the beginning of spring.

We have had snow drops here, too, but of the flake kind! Hopefully my snowdrops will appear once this weather bucks up.

I am always thrilled to see these little ones brave their pretty heads against the harsh elements. Very nice to read poetry always...
