GBMD - 'Snowdrop Time'
'Ah,hush tread softly through the rime,
'For there will be a blackbird singing,or a thrush
Like coloured beads the elmbuds flush:
All the trees dream of leaves and flower and light,
And see ! The northern bank is much more white
Than frosty grass, for now is snowdrop time.'
- Mary Webb 1811 -1927.
This is my February contribution for Garden Bloggers' Muse Day which falls on the first day of each month. Garden Bloggers' Muse Day was started by Carolyn Gail at her blog Sweet Home and Garden Chicago, where there are links to other February poems.
