The trumpet of a prophecy!


“The trumpet of a prophecy! O Wind,
If Winter comes, can Spring be far behind?”

from Ode to the West Wind
Percy Bysshe Shelley, 1820

These hoarfrost covered leaves, resilient in our winter wonderland,
will soon be freed to welcome spring.


  1. The seasons tick by with some certainty and whilst we, the intellectual have a tendency to forget we need only look to the simple trees and plants to remind us. A beautiful picture and a timely snippet of a lovely poem!
