February Sonnet

Amidst the chill that February brings,
The frost-kissed mornings and the evenings cold,
A quiet strength within the earth still clings,
As whispered tales of springtime are foretold.

The barren trees, like sentinels, stand tall,
Their branches etched against the gray sky's dome,
Awaiting warmer winds to break their thrall,
To coax the hidden buds of life to bloom.

Yet, in this cold, a beauty pure and keen,
As snowflakes weave a tapestry of peace,
Each crystal, a fragment of a dream,
A promise that the grip of winter will cease.

For in the heart of winter's deepest chill,
Lies the silent hope that spring will fulfill.
Barren tree against a gray sky
Barren tree against a gray sky
