"YOU'RE A SNOWDROP IN SNOW"

said a man I knew, quite a friend,
trying out the phrase.

I watched snowdrops that winter.

How staight they stood in the snow
- up to their necks,
their chins.

It was the thaw that killed them.

When my friend died, I searched his poems
for the line.
Was there love in it?

but for now the cold brings it's glow
of sun glistening whilst snowdrops grow
