Bright bands of sunlight stretch over the earth’s narrow horizon
Temporarily banishing the bitter darkness away.
The misty air bleeds down and disperses
Reviving all that is dead.
The earth starts to recover, no longer soiled by cold decay
The simple drops of cool rain invigorate all of life.
Creatures emerging from their hidden places
While colorful delicate flowers gladly expose themselves
They no longer fear being scolded by the harsh freezing winds
Life can finally start again.
