S  SNOWDROPS ~ Sweet flowers sent from Heaven

W  WE  consider them in  U K

E   EVERY YEAR  as  sign that WINTER

E   EVENTUALLY will go away

T   TO BE  replaced by sunny SPRING !


S  SNOWDROPS now poking through the snow 

N  NOW  we see them ~ know SPRING is here

O  OPEN  your eyes ~ yes you see them  

W WHEREVER you look ~ in Gardens

D  DOWN  in the DELL where Fairies play

R  RUNNING  in and out the Snowdrops

O  OPEN  your eyes ~ and see them ~ look  

P  PRETTY Snowdrops ~ telling out ~ that

S  SPRING is just around the CORNER !


Thanks for visiting ~ comments welcome ~ BRIAN XOX

If you are locked in by SNOW remember SNOWDROPS !


This poem is presented as an "blank verse" Acrostic Sonnet

14 lines (5 ~ 9) each 8 syllables ~ iambic tetrameter ~ OK !
