The Days of Rebirth

The Days of Darkness are behind us

A new sun rises


Winter’s frozen claws

Which have been sunk deeply into this land

Are finally thawing


The land slowly awakens

And remembers her past glory:

Soon the trees will be crowned with snow-white splendour

And the birds will sing the joyous news from the treetops


The Days of Darkness are behind us

Now come the Days of Rebirth.

    Well, I ‘m not much the poet, but the snow-white splendor reference of blossoms inspires a very poetic picture in which the tree, personified as a girl, dresses in snow to sleep. She’s tired of changing her clothes and her wardrobe of green, and yellow, and brown, is discarded at her feet. Spring comes and she dresses in snow.

    Great last line, “Now come the days of rebirth”. Simple but effective.
