The narcissus unfolds

Like a chick breaking free

Yellow and white.


White and brown

The lump of dirty snow

Clings desperately to life.


Spring and winter

Laying but inches from each other

Shining youth and grimy age.


Together, they echo

The calamity that named the flower

The pain and the sorrow.


Yet together, they are

More beautiful

Than they could be alone.
