Another Year Approaches

As another year approaches

On the back of a brisk breeze

The garden comes alive


Against the backdrop

Of a clear sky

Just a tiny silver plane high


In the distance

Dragging a short tail

Of vapour trail


Sun glances

Gilding the topmost branches

Of the silver birches


Last year’s yellow rags

Of willow leaves

Ripple and dance


Having seen

No winter frost or snow

The grass is still green


The yearly snowdrops

Remain unseen
