Blanket of Snow

Confab With Me

The sun lit skies,
Glittering the season’s first snow,
Spreading over the trees,
Beyond the hills,
And by the prickly briers.

Sheets of white,
Draping the world,
With its ivory shroud,
And the shining graupels,
Discreetly escaping,
The soft grip of clouds.

Such is the nature’s caper,
Dancing in tandem,
As if set in some perfect harmony,
So hard to decipher.

And I sit by the windowsill,
Observing the quietude,
And though there is calmness,
Yet I hear nature’s sound,
Leaving me agape,
Dazzled and astound.

  1. ‘Sheets of white draping the world’ such a wonderful description. I’ve personally never seen snow, but I don’t even know if I’d want to. As a Floridian, I think my bones would freeze upon arrival. 🤦🏽‍♀️😆

  2. Haha, that’s comforting. My brother lives in Minnesota, he’s become a pro at shoveling snow, who would have thought?! A Florida man now shoveling snow. My sister-in-law says, at first, in the morning it’s a beautiful sheet of snow, by the end of the day, it’s mud! LOL I guess you can’t win them all after all. 🙂

  3. I love the descriptions of the snowfall in this poem. Also, the end where you talk about your wonder and joy in this moment add to the beauty of the poem. -Jill
