The Great Melt

Across the cold landscape
an endless blanket white,
the snowy vision cast
long a lone color bright.

The frozen world that’s ruled
these last six weeks or more
has begun to loosen its hold
on time or premature.

Now the great melt begins,
rivulets to and fro,
gentle drips hinting spring…
is it true? Here’s hoping so.
