The prompt: Write a valediction
"Farewell to Winter"
Now the pollen lines lay dense
Around every door and fence.
And breezes sing among new buds
Over children covered in mud.
Wide windows are pushed open
To pull all that sweet freshness in
With verdant shimmering light
And the yellow-bright dust of new life.
Until November next, my friend
When we'll be sure to meet again.
