Sweep away the bracken
The moss and fallen leaves,
Untie the silken cobwebs
That clothe the winter trees.

Cut back the darkest wood
And prune the rosehips red,
Let breathe the greenest shoots
That rise from fallow bed.

The rain is falling heavy
Night winds are swift to chill,
The dew is laden softly
On mornings dark and still.

But the seasons are slowly changing
The planet spins across the sun,
Change is never lasting
Spring is yet to come.

The earth will grow more mellow
The flowers will show their bud,
The caterpillar will awaken
The worms will turn the mud.

The birds will fly back to us
And sing their fervent song,
And all the thoughts of summer
With warmth and evenings long.

After the year we had, that winter
Where warmth was hard to find,
The coming of the spring
Restores faith, peace of mind.

Her work has been featured in publications such as ‘Paper’ Saatchi Gallery and and ‘100 Painters of Tomorrow’. She was included in the New Contemporaries, Saatchi New Sensations and the Catlin Guide.
