Poem - Winterworld

Hi!

This next poem, Winterworld, was inspired by a night scene I saw yesterday with snow falling in the darkness. Enjoy!


Snow falls

Gently

Littlespecks tumbling

To theearth below.

Sometimeslit up by dim streetlights

But mostlyswallowed up by the blackness

Of thenight.

 

The onlynoises are

A distantdog barking at the sky

The carsreplying as they roar through silent streets

And thesnow

Driftingdown

Like piecesof the stars and the clouds

Or tinyworks of art

Made byangels.

 

The streetssleep

Dreaming

Ofsugarplums and soft blankets

Of fluffyclouds and gentle cushions

Of thepeaceful winterworld

Outside.

The snowweaves a lullaby

That rocksthe city

To sleep.

 

Listen.


- K ;)
