Clumps of Daffodils shelter by the wall,
Kept safe and warm by new snowfall.
They look so snug and warm, sleepy too,
Getting ready for new birth and view.
This touches my heart, when I behold,
Nature midst it`s trials, can then unfold
Such joy, and hope, when their bright faces show
Bobbing yellow flowers, that nestled in the snow.
