One place understood helps us understand all places better.

Would I?

If I had to bud
against a grey sky
would I?

If I had to shed
snowflakes in May
could I?

Would I stand
against a freezing rain
bearing my limbs heavy
to the ground?

And at the first thaw
would I spring tall
life over all
confirmed again?
