POET'S CORNER FOR WINTER, 2006


    "CROCUS"

    When trees have lost remembrance of the leaves
    that spring bequeaths to summer, autumn weaves
    and loosens mournfully - this dirge, to whom
    does it belong - who treads the hidden loom?

    When peaks are overwhelmed with snow and ice,
    and clouds with crepe bedeck and shroud the skies -
    nor any sun or moon or star, it seems,
    can wedge a path of light through such black dreams -

    All motion cold, and dead all traces thereof:
    What sudden shock below, or spark above,
    starts torrents raging down till rivers surge -
    that aid the first small crocus to emerge?

    The earth will turn and spin and fairly soar,
    that couldn't move a tortoise-foot before -
    and planets permeate the atmosphere
    till misery depart and mystery clear! -

    And yet, so insignificant a hearse? -
    who gave it the endurance so to brave
    such elements? - shove winter down a grave? -
    and then lead on again the universe?
