The Snow.


Late Winter Snowfall

Snow falls
on snow.

Lazily drifting
above to below.

I shuffle
through the white.

All is still...
no sounds tonight.

The trees covered
in frozen ash.

Quiet, serene
they watch, abashed.

I am obtrusive,
so I leave.

Saddened by thoughts
I cannot conceive.

Outside snow
falls on snow.

What else is out there?
I do not know.

Cute - she does have that pensive look about her, doesn't she?

Don't center the words - go back and have them justified to the left. That way you get the feel of snowfall as you read the text. ;)

Very nice. In Georgia today, we just have extreme wind but our temps are balmy - almost spring-like!

This is really beautiful. It almost makes me want some snow. ALMOST.
Beautiful poem...

Your little granddaughter looks like she really wants to go out and play in all that lovely whiteness!! And we have tons of it here, too :-)
