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.)

The Poet’s House

Leaden footed winter.
Lumbering elephantine.


A pieced poverty of color
the house close-mouthed.
Silvery shards,
a fence frosted, still erect.
Shallow footprints of anticipation,
the tulips and daffodils quilled.
