Yet Again I Feel Betrayed By Spring

 Spring SnowI confess I feel betrayed,
Yet again….
On this first week of spring,
Every night it seems more snow comes.
 
Green shoots of flowers
Are doing all they can,
Working hard to emerge,
Grow under direction of warming Sun,
Raise their tender arms,
Eventually unfurl their flowers.
 
How do they keep faith when under snow?
Night after night
Temperatures plummet,
Snow flakes land upon their
Freezing leaves and little buds.
 
If all of life contains an arcing moral,
Hidden meaning that sometimes
Is deciphered only in the darkest night….
Can you tell me
What is being declared within this cold lesson?
I would have asked the robins….
They were here two weeks ago.
Now they’ve moved south again.
