Dew and snowflakes, representing autumn and winter, form a grave for the soil beneath and even roots are frozen. Life comes to a standstill like death. Though hope, personification of man, slept on the bed of tears, hearing voice of God its heart beats to bloom in full.

Once there is youthful bloom December snowy droughts will not affect it. Then life is ennobled and past remains a memory. The poet seems to suggest that we need to keep hope alive in spite of odds in life and wait for divine Grace.
