Ice and More Ice


Limbs laden with sparkling ice sway gently in the  breeze

Hear the sighing of trees heavy with grieving

As the temperature rises with a sunny day

The tears drip, drip from tiny icicles on bending branches


Ice and more ice is everywhere with walkways like skating rinks

Few are out there, view form the window is hostile

The fairyland beauty of sparkling ice is treacherous under foot

Waiting for the freezing rain to stop, the temperatures to rise


Power companies have crews working on the ice downed lines

While inmates of homes bundle in heatless houses

Thinking of the Spring that is to come

This ice and snow will soon pass as does sorrow


Limbs of trees laying on the ground await removal

As grief must give way to the hope of a new and warmer day.


Ice and More Ice (2014) Quentin Clingerman
