SPRING POEMS: “Out of the cold” by Kathleen Gillum


“Out of the cold”


Out of the cold and frozen earth

The tiny shoots appear,

And always take me by surprise

At this time of year.

Those minty, fragile drops of white

On slender stalks of green,

Have sometimes sprung up overnight

Upon the winter scene.

They are the first of all the flowers

To brave the ice and cold –

Who gives the secret strength they have

To stand so straight and bold?
