The Great Reversal

frosty trellis


Where once a green and virile vine

Twined its length upon your frame,

Frost has thrust his hoary head,

Icy claws have staked their claim.


Do not lose hope as Winter’s grip

Sinks fangs of doom into your heart;

Where once his frozen work remained,

Spring’s greenery will grow her art.

  4. It’s a lovely time when winter starts to leave and you can see the tiny green buds starting to develop as if they are waking up. Spring may be on her way soon. Nice post.
