A White Fall. Poem by Fay Slimm

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.
