    Great Circle

    Great Circle


    This South wind,

    cold, but lately turned,

    impatient to be gone,

    scornful of wanting warmth,

    ragging smoke from chimney

    tops as tribute flower to carry North,

    swayed back where it came from

    to smirch the Ice Queen's virgin birth,

    each smutted flake's confetti fall

    draining snow's albedo spell

    to set aside the sun's recall.

    Thanks Alex, I always read your poems
    but feel them tinged with a sadness
    which I find hard to comment
    on with my usual spurious
    bonhomie,
