"Winter's End" - Poem Please do not take without my consent - thanks! Winter's End - Winter's end comes with a breeze Dewy and warm with a coming thaw Blowing away the frost and cold And the old icicles. Winter's end comes with the twinkle As dawn yawns away the everlasting darkness And the frozen lakes shake away their icy layers. A snow leopard creeps along the craggy mountains A white owl flies silently back to her den But here come the caribou And the birds of song Washing away the endless white For spots of brightness. Winter's end comes with soggy streets And green saplings Of young love and renewed friendships. Out of death comes life For the baby birds will flap their wings And cry to their mothers. The wild mare will gallop to her secret place And lay in the green fields again to bring a new life to her band. And with winter's end comes song and color Until with icy fingers she comes again To claim the land in her white throne.
