POEM: The Crocus Performs a Most Courageous Act (A triolet)

The Crocus Performs A Most Courageous Act

The crocus performs the most courageous act
When she pokes her egg beak through ice and snows
To find warm light through nascent cracks.

Though she is free to give up at any time and turn back,
She does not, as urge becomes botanical fact.
The white tiger winter must know

That a crocus in April cannot be distracted
When she wears her white dress with that colorful bow.
