Treasure Island

Fay Slimm

(Ageless. / in Cornwall U.K.)

A White Fall.

An overnight wonderland
Has coated my windowpane
Frostily, flakily white.

So rarely enjoyed in rain-
Sodden sea garden place
This soft flossy snow I lightly
Pace and experience before
Noonday thaw. A vast virgin
Blanket I must mark and stamp
With happy delight urging
To more, then bending, rolling
And gath'ring round heads I
Recall fond mem'ries with glee.
Tray-gliding, snowsliding, eyes
For white statue-men. This being
Ten again's appealing to me.!

    Yes! I can taste the snow from this.
    Have you ever taken a snowbath? If not PLEASE do! It is fantastic. You need no clothes and about two minutes of resolve.

    Your usual great writing.

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
