Spring erupts with verdant plumage,
lilac breezes preening such yield.
All around bestir the boasts
of resurrected life, the rout
the Green Man in his rise reveals.
As he climbs from a barren tomb
of snow and stultifying winter,
rending dead bark
with unyielding life,
the Green Man manifests a scene
unhindered in its christened sheen.
