Glowing Galanthus

Galanthus nivalis
Galanthus nivalis

          The Snowdrop – Lord Alfred Tennyson

          Many, many welcomes,

          
February fair-maid!

          Ever as of old time,

          Solitary firstling,

          
Coming in the cold time,

          Prophet of the gay time,


          Prophet of the May time,

          Prophet of the roses,
Many,

          Many welcomes,

          February fair-maid!
