First Snow

By Robert L. Brimm / December 2, 1996



I watch them

sliding slowly

on my windowpane,

harbingers

come to warn me

of impending winter,

stirring again

that memory

of plucked feathers,

as she called them,

swiftly enveloping

on a hillside path.

I can still taste

that delicious

melting cold,

still hear her

laughing with me,

that great

explosion of joy.
