Ice Drop: Poem

An ice dropIce Drop

In the cold depths of winter,

The frozen snow

Holds close and deep

The secrets entrusted

It to keep.


On a thawing day in spring,

A shiver of sunshine

Touches the snow,

Shakes loose an ice drop

With its’ glow.


A single moment in suspense,

A lifetime in the waiting.

Ice drop melts, falls,

Splashes in tears,

Exposes all.
