The Poet’s House -Winter

Leaden footed winter. Lumbering elephantine. — A pieced poverty of color the house close-mouthed. Silvery shards, a fence frosted, still erect. Leaden footprints of anticipation, the tulips and daffodils quilled. (I found a black and white print of “The Poet’s House” in a second-hand book. Artist unknown. I added seasonal color. This is winter.)
