The snow has covered all the ground
There’s not another soul around
Our world of white is drowning in
A swirl of ice and sleet and wind.
There is no color anywhere
Except for trees whose limbs are bare
And evergreens both small and tall
Whose silouettes display it all.
This winter beauty that we see
Will fade away eventually !
WINTER BEAUTY ( 2019 ) 2019/02/12
Gone from all sight are the autumn leaves
We hear the wind, it attacks the eaves
The ice does crackle across each lawn
A small sparrow chirps, move on, it’s dawn.
The clouds are laden in shadowed sky
Let’s pray this storm quickly passes by
It’s the time of year the branches break
While plants that sleep have too much at stake
Tis the moment all must carry on
Since we have spring to depend upon !
