Kindness Grows (Sonnet)

Even after coldest winter winds,
These living fractals, branches, still extend
And, having lately seemed the face of death,
Fill once again with nests and sprays of leaves.
They will become again cool shaded spots
Where you and I recline in grateful rest
When heated days of August come again
And so pass on the pleasures of their lives.
So human hearts endure some other cold,
And yet become alive and heated through
By some returning kindness unforeseen
Or cool indifference suddenly transformed.
So natural life returns its good as much
As kindness spreads from every human touch.
