Changes Spring Forth at Winter's Edge
By Don Iannone

Almost there--
to spring that is.
While a heavy wet snow fell today
...winter knows by now
...that spring is inevitable, and
little can it do
...to discourage spring
...from taking center stage.
Once the crocuses have had
their chance to shine
...the daffodils will take the yard by storm.
And once the daffodils
have gone daffy
...the orange, red, and yellow tulips
will have their way--
until the hungry deer discover them
and mow them down.
So much change springs forth at winter's edge.

Yes. It's too easy to not notice it because of preoccupations of course.

So sweet, selfless little flowers
giving themselves to us the voyeur.
Thank you for sharing this with us.

I like that time too, the "edge" or borderland between the two seasons.

Yeah! It's finally starting to come on here -- through the mist and melting snow. Love the surge of Spring. Nice work.
