I have stayed in my place

Rooted into the deep cool earth

Surrounded by design and purpose

Yet my branches were barren and cold

I felt I might be getting too old

And shivered at the thought of the end


But then the daylight grew longer

The chill of the night began to waver


I felt a stirring amongst the stillness of the snows

Despite the dark and the cold, my hope still grows


Then one morning it simply happened

Greenery, life began to appear

Rushing over my former barrenness like delicate waterfalls


An abundance

An overflowing of beauty and elegance and grace


I once again can lift my face

To see the wonders of the coming sun


I have emerged


And won.
