Winter White
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

Other Poems by Quentin Clingerman

Wisps of vapor escape into the air
From shallow breathing
As the snow crunches under foot
The days are winter white

Crisp and clean, the air
Ground and vegetation in white apparel
As though dressed for a festive occasion
Mute the sounds other than of cracking limbs

A chain saw may be heard
Or the bumping of a snow plow
Even the birds are quiet
In their hunt for food

Winter white decorates the earth
To take away the dullness
A bright sun glistens on the snow
Like expensive diamonds

Wisps of vapor escape
From shallow breathing
As the snow crunches under foot
The days are winter white

Winter White (c)2003 Quentin Clingerman
