Not so very deep in ground there waits
For noon sun straight-angled and the longer days
That signal spring. In our hearts we know
That bulbs and roots are ready to do
What they always do- they grow.
This piling white that seems to never stop
that falls incessant from leaden skies will drop
To nothing but the water spring bulbs need
To waken in their earthen dark for the freeze
To end just as the snow will end (it always does)
And April, not so long awaiting will see the bulbs
Push forth, spring up, break soil and bloom
For not so very deep in ground there waits
The spring, just wait, it’s coming soon

Every Snowfall 2020-21, #25 light snow falling, about an inch (18th day in a row)
