Winter Morn (first published by Atlantic Advocate, 1978)


Winter Morn

 

A frosted, glittering world

greets the sleepy eye

the morning after a blizzard.

A quiet bright world.

an unfamiliar,

muffled white world,

where rooftops glisten

gift-wrapped,

where sidewalks glimmer,

fleece-napped,

where fence posts glister,

snowcapped,

and fir boughs low bow

with the weight of their

sparkling robes.

The backyard is almost edible,

with its gleaming ice-cream

snow drifts,

fancy-iced hedge cakes,

and twinkling tree-stump sundaes—

landscape unforgettable.

The crisp air is alive,

awhirl with a flurry of

shimmering flecks.

Show showers on a sunny winter morn—

A winter reverie newborn.

  1. Beautiful. sounds like you love winter as much as I do. Or have you lost your appreciation of it now that you are older?
