Naïve eyes see only snow,
the icy blanket o’er all the land.
For those of us who’re in the know,
we see the future Mother’s planned.
The long, dark nights ignite your fears,
attention fixed on how we’ll cope
but I implore you, please, don’t waste your tears,
for all around us bursts with hope.
Be blinded not by what is hidden
and fail to marvel at all She brings,
beauty it is ne’er forbidden,
it soars upon a robin’s wings.
Hear not the menace in winter’s breeze
but promises of spring’s salvation.
Allow your mind to be at ease,
it’s merely part of life’s creation.
A spark of light begins the thaw
and all will stop and stare in awe,
I just pray it’s not too late;
to love; embrace; appreciate.
