Winter Garden

Vintage Words


Then I glanced outside

to check for rain

or snow and found

brown stalks and a few

leaves that fell late.

They winked back.


Come spring a rake

will unveil earth again,

clippers will trim neatly,

and when I glance

outside to check

for rain or sunshine,

green will look

back, instead of brown,

and grin.

This is true

Still, fermented fruit is not a Spring harbinger. Plz pass the Merlot :D
