Blizzard Scene

Other Poems by Quentin Clingerman

Nature calls in wintery blasts
Feet nearly frozen, gloves ice-clad
The snow in blustery defiance
Covers plowed roads

Fences bear scarves of white
Outdoor lamps glow through icy glaze
Snowbound cars stand rigidly silent
'Til the blizzard has done its worst

Eyes peer out of thermal windows
Watching smoke from heated chimneys
Mix and swirl with the falling snow
All becomes a glassy white

The scolding wind the only sound
To note that life is about
Time for a kettle of hot chocolate
And dreamy fire in the fireplace

Buttery popcorn and hot chestnuts
And a good book
Better yet a person with whom to snuggle
And sing, "Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!"

Blizzard Scene(c)2003 Quentin Clingerman
