A Show of Snowdrops

A Show of Snowdrops

A Poem by Chris
"

(a little bit of spring)

"
In clusters in a wooded copse
lie snowdrops stirring from their sleep.
And though the March wind blows its best,
it will not slow the creep of growth
that closes time on winter's rest.

Their double-headed blooms bow down,
yet pure and white their bells will ring
when sun bleeds through the cloudy greys,
they'll cheer and fling their drooping heads
to face the rays of warm spring days.

Beautiful poem Chris. To tell the truth I always wanted to write a poem on snowflakes or snowdrops but after reading your poetry I am very sure I could have never described and framed it so wonderfully. I especially loved the last lines. To me it also shows that how love like Rays of sun can cheer you up and melt hard feelings and mend broken hearts. Very nice poem

I love the way you describe how snowdrops make the bells heavy & drooping. That's an observation about spring I've never thought about & it's so specific & visual. Great work always bringing us fresh imagery to soak into our cold bones (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

It's a pretty and comprehensive poem. I like the cheerful snow characterization despite the fact that spring is rolling in in the poem. There's some nice alliteration paired with good imagery. I especially like 'blooms bow down.' I hope you don't mind me asking, but why two 5 Line stanzas?

We receive a taste of Spring. Cold again in Michigan. I hope, no snow. I am waiting for Spring. I need a long walk and the lake. Thank you dear Chris for sharing the amazing poetry.

Chris - what a beautiful scene you paint with your words.
I can easily see these flowers, white and glistening in the
coming days of spring. Thank you for the picture.

Take care - Dave

Indeed I saw this in our garden as the snowdrops fought off the winter chills. Nice observation piece.

I "think" we have seen the last of our snowdrops 17 to 22 degrees, but, what a weird winter
