In winters tune
May we gaze upon
The strokes from coloured oils
Dabbed and doodled
Short and long that reach into stemmed pillars
Cupping the petals that remind us
Although cold and bitter days are here
Soon, may we breathe a sigh
In the glorious beauty, of a new spring day
And smile at the flowers that bloom in May
