Best Poem of Sonya Florentino

Ode To Spring

It snowed today
Again
Like yesterday
And once more
Snow tomorrow

A harsh winter
That's what they say
Colder than it's ever been
Snow like we've never seen
Spring... it will be late

But I will wait, for like fate
Spring always follows
Spring always comes
Spring has never failed me

Even under 6 feet of sorrow
No matter how long I burrow
Spring somehow always finds me

Read the full of Ode To Spring

+ Winter's Chill

I still can't get used to the cold
It still chills me to the bone
No matter how thick my coat
Or how many winters I've known

It reminds me that I'm all alone
It reminds me that I'm far from home
It reminds me that I am getting old

[Hata Bildir]
