Frozen Flowers

The flower flesh is frozen
but there are seeds beneath the ground,
there are seeds beneath the ground.
The florets have all grayed
Their scent is buried in the snow,
I do not know what Spring will bring;
I fear what things may grow,
but the birds will someday soon return
and sing and peck and bound;
for they too know, and they too fear,
the seeds beneath the ground.
