HEAT MIDWINTER (On a warm winter’s day)

In the heat of our Midwinter
The ground stirs like spring,
Flies vie with the tractor
As distant bells do ring.
Flying round the farmer
Buzzing in the shining
You could be fooled
Into false believing
That far from cooled
We’re forever warming.
But as yet unfound
She has surprisings
In still cold ground.
Waiting in the wings
Now’s not the time to diet
Think of warming things,
Let your imagination riot
And just see what it brings.
Months ahead may fool us
Keep the layers and the leggings
To warm but never cool us!
Plenty of time for stripping
Have patience my dear friends
You’ll feel the degrees arising
Rest while winter’s heat amends
And life begins its waking.
When she lets go she’ll burst
As ground erupts with shakings
Watch carefully and be the first
To feel the first heart beat of Spring,
It’s just around the corner!
