Night Skate - Poem by Edmund V. Strolis
I heard her before I ever saw her.
Powder snow, moonlit path
Her prints so fine, light as the night
Somewhere ahead, that tantalizing hiss
The pond her refuge, revealed at last
Pine wreathed icy jewel of paradise
No place on earth would I rather be
Cloaked in shadow, intoxicating wonder
Graceful dancing crystal bird
With blades for wings she soared
Moon mirror split by her silhouette
The stars witness to sweet harmony.
Entranced, I knew, all yesterdays were folly
You could not have convinced me otherwise
That all of this planet's storied history
Was but a mere prelude for this very moment.
