The Bravest of Flowers
The Bravest of Flowers

The bravest flowers are crocuses and snowdrops.
As pioneers they force themselves upward, despite
the cold, damp soil and the inclement weather.
They know for certain they have to endure it alone.

Gorgeous, as they stand sturdily against the odds,
showing the rest of the early spring flowers
why they are the chosen forerunners. How bold
they stand steady in the wind, and rain and snow.

How reliable and kind they are, just like sturdy
Salvation Army soldiers holding the line and
showing fortitude. Bringing colour and expectation
their job is done as reinforcements arrive.
