Ode To Spring - Poem by Sonya Florentino

It snowed today
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

    Nice metaphor of problems and solutions: sometimes life imitates elements of nature and sometimes nature mocks life. (Report) Reply
