With budding arms and puckered lips
You pierce the winter, dreary
My heart alights; my hopeís reborn
For winter has grown weary

I see no thorns, no late decay
Today itís only pledges
The promises you toss abroad
Like kisses oíer the hedges

The dreadful snow, now brown with rot
Is derelict in leaving
The cold and frost refuse to fade
The roads and knolls, still heaving

But here, your face unfurls the flag
Alas, rebirth is dawning
Your blushing cheek, your petals, pink
Perceiving robins fawning

You labored through the icy crust
To rally all thatís pleasing
Goodbye Jack Frost, his minions, all
And welcome, gentle season

Here, I share, with stark honesty, my life.
