And through the Winter neglected lay,
Uncoils two little green leaves and two brown,
With tiny root taking hold on the clay

Insightful and lovely.This poem is a gem!

I am amazed at the peaceful moments WA captures, yet the depth of thought in the last phrase of where will he be when the seedling is a tree.
