Spring lifts her head

Categories Poetry

Robin’s song is crystal clear
Cold as an icicle,
Sharp as a spear.
I have seen Spring lift her head,
Snowdrops a-shivering,
Winter dead.

(“Robin’s Song,” E.L.M. King)

Maybe I should have some commentary, but really — what more is there to say? The ground offers up crocuses this morning, and the spring birds are returning. Time to stop talking and listen, look, smell, rejoice!

Welcome, spring.

  1. Thank you. The crocus had snow on it later in the day, but it still stood tall.

    I like the poem because my daughters memorized it (on their own initiative) in about 5 minutes. It just seemed to be a perfect fit for the season.
