Spring Sonnet


Continental drift of snow reveals
Hints of summer warmth and beauty both,
As icicles that drip now just at noon
Will saturate the soil below for growth.
Deep underground our earthworm armies sleep
While snow banks four feet thick protect their lives
From creatures hungry for whatever lives
So nothing they see now and catch survives.
The wonder that this icy noon reveals
Is simply that the earth still breathes its breath;
When all its colors seem to be concealed,
Life waits, impatiently defying death.
All things must change, but nothing really dies,
Death is just change, and new life in disguise.
