Spring Hope (Poetry)

(A poem by Mary Nevin)

A life brutally stripped,

Pruned jagged and raw.

Blasted by winter winds,

Drenched by freezing rain,

Shocked into premature dormancy.


Now awoken by coaxing warmth.

Buds of fresh hope shoot through,

Branching in new directions.

Tender leaves unfurl;

Shimmering, dancing,

Delighting in the joys of spring.
