The Snowdrop

Published January 10, 2022 by Naomi Rettig

Warrior flower, hardy and fearless,

Thrusting up and out into bitter cold.

You look so delicate, porcelain white

With wisps of green gracing your contours.

You are the reconnaissance mission!

The crocus infantry will follow

You into the spring, as will the legions

Of daffodils, bluebells, tulips and pansies.

You lead the way out from the dark bleak months,

Bringing hope and beauty and joy with you.

Dear little fragile snowdrop, thank you

For being a winter warrior.
