Snow And Rain - Poem by Terence George Craddock (Spectral Images and Images Of Light)

I have watched
and felt
both snow and rain
shaken

from bough
of tree limbs,
desired to linger
longer to watch

'Silent and soft and slow'
the first snow fall
as a new mantle
'Descends the snow'.


I wonder
if Longfellow
faced the same
dilemma,

the onset
of encroaching dark
or a possible
turn in the weather,

may necessitate
but the glimpse
with long hours
of hard hiking left


before
the days
journey
is over.
