As winter fades above you,
Your crown pokes through the ground;
You tentatively peep and take
A regal look around.
Good morning little snowdrop, so full of hope and grace.
How wonderful to welcome your gentle smiling face.
You stretch to reach the sunlight
With a gracious, sylphlike yawn.
Your confidence is growing;
Hope of spring begins to dawn.
Good afternoon young snowdrop, so full of peace and love
How wonderful to welcome you to the world above.
The snow has disappeared,
And winter turns and leaves.
Your wave farewell reveals
Your long and slender sleeves.
Good day my little snowdrop, so delicate and fine
How wonderful to welcome you into this heart of mine.
You sway in celebration,
On tiptoes in the breeze.
The weather has a delicate
And sudden tiny sneeze.
Good evening humble snowdrop; I’m so pleased that you’re here.
You bring a breath of life to the beginning of the year.
from Angela's Poems
Ja, idag har jag rensat bort lövtäcket i vår snödroppsrabatt,
och oj, så härligt det kändes.
Jag säger bara
V Ä L K O M M E N V Å R !
