Snow had fallen, snow on snow, snow on snow, In the bleak midwinter, long ago. —Christina Rossetti


Bright as folded paper hats Upturned sailboats made on Lazy summer days, the rooftops

Seem ready, but for the weight Of snow, to wing themselves Away. Tortured into sharp

Planes, white kites, rooftops cut The silent smoke-dense sky into A complex shape, sail through

Late afternoon when all is Still before the night shoulders Out the long, pale, winter day


Somewhere not too far lies Forest, or at least a stand of trees Bare of leaves and laced with ice

Cold so fine it cracks the breath Of wind into a filigree. No angles Here, just the abstract design

Snow makes where it outlines Burrows, stones and stream Crochets the needles of the pine

Into a latticed rooftop against A darkening sky, etched with the Day’s last diamonds of light


Hushed town prepares for sleep Under rooftops iced into a graceful Geometry. The woodland mutters

And creaks as new snow settles On branches before the nighttime Freeze. Lighted windows in a dark

Façade wink. A hundred years later Real town, imaginary trees, become A poet’s reverie. Painted Danish

Rooftops wing their way through Time to mind, simple as paper Airplanes tossed into a winter sky
