We live our lives now
in spring days.
See another sunrise
through the cherry blossom snow.
A cool breeze brings a promise
of daffodils lining brickwork
and greenery emerging from the soil.
Long will the frost of winter be forgotten
and the rumours of sleigh bells
and eggnog – an acquired taste though it may be –
and we relish in the thought of dusting off
our warmer clothes
for the spring and summer of 2017 …
