Snowdrops Beyond the Fence

 Just beyond the white pickets, in a yard that had been a study in dulled-down olives and browns, a patch of fresh green and white has appeared. Snowdrops! They pushed up on a mild day. Now they stand in solidarity, stems straight, little heads drooping. Bitter winds arrived today but the snowdrops are here. Spring will follow.
