Time And Tide Wait For No Man

Hello Spring 

For I did not see you there


Veiled was I under wintry skies

My eyes seeing only one colour


But ambivalent winter skies

Are broken upon

Water boldly trickles wistfully 




Then gleefully rushes giddy and childlike 

Over the branches 

I am the only one 

Nature frames itself 



Houses hidden down quiet lanes 



Time and tide waits for no man 



Why rush into Spring ?

For only fools rush into beauty and magnificence.
