Winter's Child and Spring
Spring Blooms, Summer Fades, Autumn Sleeps
and Winter Flees...
Each Season must give way to the next,
but this year, Winter's Child refused
to give up her Post.
When Spring's Apryl came to Winter Season's Gate,
Little Poe cried...
"To welcome you, Spring,
I am not ready to agree...
rather, I am thinking about
what will happen to me!"
indeed arrived to welcome in Spring,
with warm winds and gentle rains within her wings,
and with flowers springing up wherever she sings.
But first, the Winter's Child must leave.
Yet Poe firmly sent her away.
Apryl left her shoes by the Gate,
returning the next day to argue her fate.
Meanwhile, Poe sat forlorn upon her perch...
How she loved the sparkles that danced across t
pondered whereto and wherefore they all might go.
She glanced down at the stoop's seat
suddenly had changed...
Sadly, Little Poe's world was becoming quite rearranged.
One day as March was caught in a lull,
Apryl brought a flower with one tiny dew drop, very dull.
It held no sparkle like the winter fields of snow,
it merely reflected her sad face of woe.
Poe was not impressed.
Apryl softly said, "Poe,
I think I know where you can go!
"Each morning could you lend the morning dew,
a sprinkling of your icey sparkles anew?
And when the flowers go back into the ground,
your Season's turn will soon come back around!"
"So now, Winter's Child, can I bring in the Spring?"
Poe thought for a long moment...
Then, she left her perch with a hop,
Apryl her slippers
and quickly went off to sparkle the dewdrop...
Apryl knew Poe's mission would carry her along,
and Winter would be welcomed in again,
before she even knew the snow was gone!
With both Poe and Apryl working together,
this Spring would be even more beautiful than ever!
Please join Apryl, Poe and me as we heartily welcome in Spring
