And so when it seemed coldest,
the plants withered away with frost.
Along came the oldest,
of seasons both present and lost.
For just one day the snow and ice had gone,
and the grass shown green on the front lawn.
It was as if Spring had appeared, if only for a day.
A reminder Winter is not forever, and Spring was on its way.
The birds chirped in the morning, the animals played!
A light breeze sounded through, and the branches swayed.
Nature was thankful for the promise that life would yet come,
and although Winter was needed, the world would not remain numb.
