The Lyrics of Spring – Kandace Zollman

THE  LYRICS OF SPRING

 

Melting.

The thick crust of winter

     that crystallized life

     holding it captive

Is broken.

In its place run

     splashing veins of ice water

Between the rocks

Along the paths

All singing their freedom

In voices that challenge

    the pounding of the sea.

Frigid night fingers still

    clutch at puddles

    scratching gossamer designs

But as morning sun

    drips over the horizon

Winter shrinks further

    and further away

Covering her ears

    to escape the

    delighted voices of 

Spring.
