Spring Snow

what becomes of early blooms when a late snow falls?
crocuses crouch
day lilies duck their heads
the forsythia blooms bright
yellow fading to white

we other creatures too must huddle within
rearrange the day to encompass the storm
welcome the unexpected chance to rest
while all the world outside is kissed by this last breath of winter
