Snow Flowers Bloom Best

Snow flowers bloom best
In the cold warming of spring,
Finding the strength they have
In the coffee Earth below
To push through what glittering ice
Holds them down.

The Alpine petals face wind
And rocky ground, but still
Push roots down through the dirt,
Making twain delicacy and fragility,
To stand against the gale of mountaintops
And bend with humble curtsey.
