Winter Fail

April 15, 2011

And lo, life bursts forth from lingering naught

escaping the winter’s long draining draught.

For blight and white can not for long withhold

the force that slips from the creative fold.

From both the thin places and dry places

it seeps with yellowy smiling faces

shaking off the drips of vernal slumber

to replicate without heed to number

and sow the seed, thrusts of generations,

the oft coughing cause from seminations.

It cannot be denied its inspiring

the fruit and figs of our youth’s deriving.

Spring forth and shout in utter glee

for winter has lost another fight with thee.
