Winter is gone this time of year, replaced with warmth, and life of spring
No more cold snow is to be seen, replaced by the buds of the spring
Not to worry for it will soon return, as if never gone.
Sijo: A short Korean poetry form consisting of three lines, each line having a total of 14-16 syllables in four groups ranging from 2 to 7 (but usually 3 or 4) syllables, with a natural pause at the end of the second group and a major pause after the fourth group. The third line often introduces a resolution, a touch of humor, or a turn of thought. Nature is often the subject matter of these poems like traditional haiku.
