Winter Montage


Frost etchings on windows.
Ice thickening
on the trough. Ground frozen
and accepting no footfall.
The sky warms enough
for snow. Deepens.
Blizzard.
Drifts.
Farm sheds rounded
to cold feather beds.
Snowbanks. The grinding
of plows on the highway.
Night milk blue.
Days snow-blind
White.
