About the Poem

Rarely do I venture to write in free or blank verse - This is a deviation from the norm. As you can see, Winter's Beauty is all in the eye of the beholder, is it not?

(Actually, I don't need any more snow in my life either)

The Day Of The Chickadee

Melodious silence greets my morn
As icy prisms suspended at my pane
Refract the advent of a freshly fallen fantasy
Mottled only by the whimsical fluttering of
A chicadee on undaunted wing.
My reverie envelops me
In a vast blanket of glistening unsullied snow,
An illusory mask for winter's sallow earth beneath.
Still waters stand in frigorific splendor as
Evergreens bough their ice-laden limbs in reverence
To the glacial touch of Nature's enchanted wand.
E'er the day of the vernal crocus,
The chicadee and I
Shall appertain this pristine dream as one.
