In its subterranean Winter quarters

once frozen plant-life slowly alters

in blind submission to unseen light,

rears imperceptably for it to smite

the frigid tenure of overnight chill,

green blades show out as if in will

seeking solace of sun's solar rays,

our Spring is due in very few days.


The yellow petals lie dormant below

waiting to wave and upward to grow,

hibernation's protection under earth

gives gestation to a welcome rebirth.


A bright new crop of returning flower

will pop up top at the crowning hour,

daffodils the garden's hidden bloom

arise from Nature's erstwhile tomb.
