J-Not Yet Winter - Poem by Marjorie DeBol DeFazio

Fifteen degrees at dawn
The morning sun now warms
Above the freezing mark
Deer have hooved the hidden earth
To graze the still succulent grass
Beneath a six inch snow
Sun pours from a deep blue sky
Bounces from the snow
Spreading joy
Making all things possible
That seemed not so
Just two short days ago
In the dark and blowing
Cold that held us lost and chilled
