Old Man Winter


The White canvas of snow announced

old man Winter arrival.

He settled in to claim his territory.

His cold and chilling ways returned with a fervor.

Across the region he spread his White blanket.

He hung his crystalline participles on the tree tops.

His granular white substance formed

chandelier-like crystals of dangling snowflakes.

The snowflakes, flurries, and blizzards revealed

his strength and agility.

Although old man Winter never revealed his age,

like his return, he exited profoundly as visible

with vigor.
