Winters Fury


                  HUSHED BEAUTY


Last evening storm clouds filled the sky.

A raging blizzard then swept by

And left my driveway piled quite high.

            The landscape’s clothed in frosty white

            From snow the storm laid down last night.

The sleeping trees, so bleak and bare

Have temporary coats to wear,

Which will be shed with spring’s warm air.

            Early blooms near patio decks

            Wear icy mufflers ’round their necks

And jaunty little white berets,

While bushes all wear snow toupees

And windows sport white appliques.

            The snow-blocked road that nature made

            Anticipates a snow-plow’s blade.

It’s early morning without sound . . .

Not from the sky — not from the ground.

After the storm, hushed beauty’s found.
