A Daffodil In Winter

In the dark of night, with a cold

and chilling wind blowing rain against

the window pane we too easily forget

the sunshine days, the ones that start

before you rise and last right on

into the night. Today I saw the golden

tip of a daffodil shine like a candle

against the dark wet winter soil. It lights

the way for Spring, a beacon that beckons

the warmth of Summer and those long,

warm sunshine days.
