I wrote this a couple of years ago for a competition. It didn't win! LOL

REBIRTH

Cruelly poke the fingers
Of winterís icy hand
Spread out across the land
To smother all that lingers

Green, to brown, to aching white
Hushing life, and taking breath
A bittersweet and gorgeous death
Like sleep upon a peaceful night

Beneath the blanket, dreams of spring
A future not so distant now
When glorious coloured heads will bow
When warmth and light will beauty bring
