Snow Falls, Upon Cedars - Poem by Maurice Harris

In a vast, Northwest forest,
Where snow falls, upon cedars:
As though in answer to an unspoken chorus,
Mine eyes rise to meet with her's;
No one else there for miles, but we two,
Guarded by our secret rendezvous place-
Cloaked by a fog none could ever see through-
There began a long-awaited, passionate embrace!

Though we were there but an hour,
I spent an eternity in my beloved's arm that day;
Even now, I still feel that moment's power-
Though this were somniation only, it does not feel that way;
I wonder where tonight's drema will take me! ? !
My only regret: that my beloved is not there, to wake me!

*Inspired by the book: Snow Falling On Cedars, by David Guterson
