Snow Enough



The snow comes down in wintertime of life
when cold gives day a frost and windy blast.
Each season has its purpose and its strife,
and winter snows bring either joy or mask.

The covering of earth’s rich blooming fray,
with hardly even inch of snowy crease,
will render slopes of Deer Creek or P-A
a sad chance for a real romp on the skis.

I love the snow when it gets really deep:
the Rockies out in Colorado will
be what you want to kick up powdered heap
and prove the joy of stark cold winter’s mill.

A deep snow shows our lives at very best,
on Eastern hills or mountains in the West.
