The Winter Has Ended…..

Spring Flowers

The winter solstice has been and gone

Heralding great change…

Bringing spring in the midst of winter…

The trees are in blossom, the birds are singing in the sun

While I’m not quite the Giant in Wilde’s tale

My garden has been perpetually in winter’s grip

Long forgotten and overlooked.

No young boy in my story, to melt the Giant’s heart

But a reformed rake straight out of the book I read last night

Clasping close the butterfly and the crystal child

Loved, warm and safe….

Finally home…..

The Selfish Giant is a story by Oscar Wilde from his book The Happy Prince and Other Tales…..
