DESCRIPTION
The Winter was a legacy of crusted weights
now melted with the Passing of the Snow
so closed and callous differences can soften
to the hope for common cause

The uphill errands of Winter were reluctant, plodding missions
to some graveyard of last season's purposes

Dignified resolves, now greying and uncombed,
line the long-abandoned journey,
The search for some inhabited door thawed open to generation

The road is repetitious, single-minded
But the year is green and young
