Longing for the Spring – a little spring poem


               Under the forest floor,
                         Under the winter snow,
                                        The wood anemones are waiting.
                         Come spring, come!
Longing for the spring: Wood anemones
Wood anemones – a sign of spring

When we are longing for the spring, up here in the cold north, the wood anemone (called vitsippa in Swedish, Anemone nemorosa) is a looked-for sign of spring. I took this photo in April 2011. Anemone was the word of the day on Artwiculate on 10th January 2013.
