Snowdrops

Leaves from last autumn are nourishing and protecting the perennials.  Today there are two new colors in the garden:  green for various returning  plants, and white for the snowdrops, which are almost blooming.

This poem was also published in SMILE (Summer, 2010) in a slightly different form.

I like the poem in four lines too–always appreciate feedback from editors and readers.
