MORNING DEW

It’s been snowing all night and day
All around, layers of fresh snow…
Young ones dream of Santa on sleigh
Amber lights in homes are aglow.
All the children tucked in their bed(s)
Their dreams filled with goodies and gifts.
The seeds dormant; leaves have been shed!
Icy-cold nights till season shifts
Spring will arrive with fragrant spread!
In that frosty silence, my thought
raced to frontline heroes at work
How many battles to be fought?
The Covid continues to lurk!!
Old year will extend into New
Not a day’s leave; no way they can shirk…
Let their hearts shine as Morning Dew
When Spring ushers with hopes anew.
