A Winter Piece

Rating: 3.0

OVER the rim of a lacquered bowl,
Where a cold blue water-color stands
I see the wintry breakers roll
And heave their froth up the freezing sands.
Here in immunity safe and dull,
Soul treads her circuit of trivial things.
There soul's brother, a shining gull,
Dares the rough weather on dauntless wings.

I see the wintry breakers roll And heave their froth up the freezing sands.- - don't you wish you could write such a watercolor image in words? I know I do
