To everything there is a time

Spring will come again

and all the buried hidden things frozen

in the hinterland twixt life and death

will feel her warm caress and

lift their heads


Spring will come again

forgetting winter’s cold restrictions

sloughing off the heavy coat as days lengthen

brightening brown to green and changing

grey to blue


Spring will come again

small flowers will appear on the earth

wearing diamonds dropped at dawn by

chasing clouds a promise of the coming

carnival of colour


Spring will come again

the seasons do not fail

even your sad weary world must turn

to face the strength and splendour

of the sun


Spring will come again

the waiting’s not in vain


Sally Ann, January 2018
