Winter's Bed
Author: Capricorn


Winter dawns as snowflakes
spill from yawning skies
like delicate lace doilies
drifting down
to blanket
the earthís grassy mattress
in a flurry of shimmering sheets.

The temperature tumbles,
scattering frosted spangles,
to glisten the quilt
pillowing terra firma,
for Winterís quiescence.

I wish I had a winter white Christmas

Darn. We didn't get any snow. We haven't gotten any in four years. You describe the winter's bed so uniquely in your writing that I can see a picture for me...

To bad it was only a
I want the real thing...
But then again, I thank God we haven't been having any snow now that I think about it. Because the teenagers where I live don't know what it means to respect other's property. The trample over your yard, dirty boot prints and all...until the snow is no longer nice and level...

But, enough of my jabbering. Wonderful poem!

I'm sorry

For line three I meant...
"a picture in front of me"

For line four, I meant
"too bad"

I'm always thinking something and typing something

Thank you Barb and Meri. We don't seem to get snow here in UK now either. It's nice to see it at Xmas -- but I hate it when it gets dirty and slippery.
