    Snow


    Binding fast what Spring must win

    from clouds that wrest a blaze of sun

    to heatless light and embered glow

    creviced deep from trunk to bough

    Winter shroud's unburied vow

    driven on by Westered wind

    overnight a fall of snow

    in samite white the world has wound.

    Nice portraiture here, evoking so much with such elegance. Spotlight on the new word, to me, Samite. Works so well, in conjunction with my thoughts on snow of late All the right balances and opposites here make for a poem, I can imagine you writing it in the morning. That's a good poem, thanks for sharing Johntee!

      Your response was super quick. I thought samite came up in the bible as the dress of angels etc.. The internet showed me how wrong I was.
      Two mornings, one to see and appreciate, one to cogitate and write
