Can Spring Be Far Off?

If Winter comes, can Spring be far behind?

—Percy Shelley, Ode to the West Wind

The temperatures do not say winter, yet leaves have become scarce in my part of Michigan and now bare tree branches reach for  the sky.  Naturally, the poet’s winter and spring may be of the calendar, or they may symbolize times when the sunlight of life  has faded and we await its returning warmth.

    So true – there always seems to be a bit of darkness dwelling during this season. The skyline seems so gray. I believe it is going to snow soon. Gorgeous image – perfectly depicting this time of year.
