Snowdrops For St Bridie's Day Poem by Jacqui Thewless

Snowdrops For St Bridie's Day

Rating: 5.0


They might be flowers
of mercy
or small emblems of
the sun's

inevitable rise;
clusters of grey-green spears,
miraculously piercing last year's

fallen foliage
without disturbing
a thing.

Earth's first birth is
whiteness - one
simple dependence
from

this little
stalk -
where hope rises
with modesty,
surprise... springs!

A poem as delicate as it's subject.
