January - Poem by Marjorie DeBol DeFazio

Frost covers everything
The sun sent red streaks across the sky
Warning weather changes

Now the bright, blinding ball is lighting the frost
Giving delicate beauty to the grasses, the cabin roof and the pond
Thirteen days into this new year
Below zero temperatures
A January thaw that brought spring

Tomorrow more snow

Winter started in the fall
Almost two feet of snow
Fierce winds, ice and driving rain

The thaw
Melted layers of snow
Watered the fields and creeks
Changed the icy river
To a muddy swirl lapping at the banks

Tonight, snow will cover everything with a clean, new blanket
