Welcome, Spring...

just when it seemed...
just when it seemed
   winter was never-ending
just when it seemed
   that springtime was a myth
   and new life a far-off
just when my spirit had
   almost succumbed to
   barren despair
suddenly there were violets
   blooming in my yard
amidst the detritus left
   by ice storms and wind
lifting hopeful heads to
   feel the sun and
   fill my heart with
        purple joy
