The Last Frost

pantoum # 2 for the D’verse challenge

sweet herbs to welcome the traveler home
wreaths and ribbons string the bower
a fire banked for the long cold night
snow blankets hill and hollow

wreaths and ribbons string the bower
celebrating anticipated growth
snow blankets hill and hollow
a rush at the window to light the way

celebrating anticipated growth
candled eggs hang in suspension
a rush at the window to light the day
frost threaded against the glass

candled eggs hang in suspension
croci push and gather from their sleep
frost threaded against the glass
a thrush sings the worms from slumber

croci push and gather from their sleep
eggs crack and pip and wobble
a thrush sings the worms from slumber
life wakes and stirs anew

eggs crack and pip and wobble
a fire banked for the long cold night
life wakes and stirs anew
sweet herbs to welcome the traveler home
