Poem about Easter Freezing Over Britain

After Marc Latham’s last Folding Mirror poem was about signs of spring returning to the northern hemisphere, the new one tells of winter’s return to Britain, with the cold weather and snow set to continue over the Easter weekend. The cold weather is particularly resonate to Marc, as he was hiking in glorious heat and sunshine in Britain at the same time last year. All this is included in the poem, and here it is:
Snowcatcher
 Freezing Eggs Easter, Christmas Cards Recycle
winter’s phoenix rises over
life born of solar flames
bustling buds once reaching skywards
now frozen lime ice cubes
eastern chill dominates air
replacing last year’s warm southerly
curl back up and hide, until nature makes seasons decide
whether they’ll respect the rules
according to human expectations
three months each seems fair
but weathervanes don’t dictate directions
they follow the strongest wind
like Earth circling Sun
