spring

knoll of grass

as winter shed her overcast

the sun began to show

and suddenly a knoll of grass

appeared amid the snow

the withered blades lay all askew

like soldiers in defeat

but as the yellow army grew

the snow began retreat

winter’s legions left the land

and rushed down to the shore

and even snowmen turned and ran

for spring had won the war
