To a Snowdrop

To a Snowdrop

O delicate flower,
why hang your head low?
Are you humbly demure?
Or just searching below?

Should you not be proud
and hold your head high?
Or are you afraid,
or just very shy?

When viewed from afar –
a vision of white,
amassed with your friends –
a beautiful sight!

Perhaps it is well
you are not like the rest.
As proclaimer of Spring,
you are simply the best!
