DPF / Plath

For, when life gives you lemons, don’t make lemonade. Take the time to experience the difficulty, to fully embrace it long enough to see its meaning for your world, from one of my poets to whom I always turn in times of confusion or sadness, from Ariel.

from Wintering / by Sylvia Plath

Will the hive survive, will the gladiolas
Succeed in banking their fires
To enter another year?
What will they taste of, the Christmas roses?
The bees are flying. They taste the spring.
