4 January – Daylight display (II)

The river path is slush now
with brown breaking down the green
but discarded fallen fireworks
have been newly truly gleamed.
Hogweed skeletons spark again
with clusters of snowflake flowers,
reprising their summer displays
and turning back the Winter hours
to August when they first exploded
in glorious detonating white,
and November when we echoed them
with sky-flowers in the night.
