Bud burst

Bud burst
by David Chadwick

Bud burst
The worst
Of winter over

Fern/s unfurl
A curl
Of new koru

eeds stir
Warm earth spurs
Rebirth – the surge of life
Beneath the ground

And the sound
Of water
Trinkling over mossy rocks
As snow melts

The first signs of spring
Smelt on the wind
And felt in the blood

Bringing us the chance to try again
