Winter beautiful snowFrom the doorway of winter

we watch autumn pass;

frost is in her hair,

her fingers are heavy with cold.

We see the tree turn to glass

and the earth to wood

and hear the cry of a lingering bird

against the metal sky.

Hushed and huddled, I hold you close

as early snowflakes flutter down

like wounded moths

and soon will blanket all our world

with white as bright as sunlight

on an open palm.

We will slumber till the spring

in a winding sheet of ice

and waken in a land of gentle rain

and radiant sun and see again

our valiant friends of old.
