Disruption– a Spring Sonnet

When after coldest Winter, Spring comes in,
It cannot help but come with some hard change
Since ice must melt and, falling so, destroy
What’s in its path and so life rearrange.
And now thus opened, soil can see the sun;
Its hidden seeds can crack and send green growth
That waited Winterlong beneath the snow
And now again finds warmth and sunlight both.
So hot life seeks hot sun, regaining hold
On growth and life and living, breathing light;
The earth returns perennial miracles
In greater beauty after Winter’s night.
Earth could not love the Summer sunlight so
If she had not known cold of Winter snow.
