“Spring

When Ded Moroz leaves off his icy crown,
And Gaea in maternal warmth’s reborn
To don anew her dandelion gown
That through untold millennia she’s worn,
We sense in blissful dawning of the morn
A hope long buried and too long forgot
Since we last gleaned the remnants of her corn
And bound them up into a tidy knot.
Yet, in our mind’s remembrance the lot
Of all that’s born in springtimes past lives on,
A fleeting thought that all that is is not
Long destined for display, and soon is gone.
In spring is written life that soon must bow;
Its heartbeat, brief, lives in the here and now." - by The Real Peter
(Whose beautiful poetry beguiled me beyond infinity; Cassie will remember his style!)


*Ded Moroz ― Old Man Winter in traditional Russian folklore
