Winter’s End

By Abigail C. Ham

Hot inside, cold on the outside,

The wind tugs as I try to bundle tight;

Freezing air plays from side to side.

I try to keep warm with all my might.

I look across our frozen yard,

And finally see a treasure.

Carefully hiding as I peer hard,

Its beauty has no measure.

I quickly step into the yard to get a better view,

And the frozen grass goes crunch

Underneath my shoe.

Now that I’m closer I see it all came true.

A sign of new hope in this frozen place:

It comes in sparkling bloom.

The winter air stings my face

As I step toward the small growing tower.

And I feel the snug air’s freezing embrace,

As I see the first new flower.

My eyes dance with wild joy,

As I see the color it brings.

As it looks at me, smug and coy,

I know it will soon be spring.
