winter’s
lingering grip
with frozen roots
and shivering stems
we haul ourselves
upright
to bloom
to open up
our delicate hearts
and show the world
that we are strong
we will not
lie down in the ice
and let it
trap us in its depths
we will not
cool our golden souls
but stand up tall
declare it spring
