Regeneration

Earth teach me to forget myself as melted snow forgets its life.
Earth teach me resignation as the leaves which die in the fall.
Earth teach me courage as the tree which stands all alone.
Earth teach me regeneration as the seed which rises in the spring.
William Alexander, Earl of Stirling, Scottish scholar, poet and putative founder of new Scotland [Nova Scotia] (c. 1570-1640)

Finally, Old Man Winter's hoary hairline is receding and tender green shoots are appearing while in the background birds are chirping, "Spring draws near!" Hurray!
