Silver Birches by Pat Morton

Silver Birches: A poem by Pat Morton, a member of the poetry group:

Silver Birches
Falling, weeping
Sleeping in the snow.
Lacy leafless branches
Burnished black against a crimson sky,
The White Lady waiting for the spring.
Branches poised for growth,
Drooping
Gently,
Caressing
Carelessly
The
Snowdrops
Round
Her feet.
Eager
Exquisite
Messengers
Of Spring.
