Rain and Snow (poem)

Cold wind carries winter rain
to patches of dying snow
wind carves frozen drops low
sprouts spring precursor grains

Rivulets increase green veins
begin times moving endless flow
hectic pace of new spring rain
hill shelters hold winter snow

Remembrance of warmth yet strains
cold nights and days one does know
fade from trails frozen tracks go
stinging flesh and black leaves pain
wind will bring warm summer rain
nostalgia for deep snow.
