In the Frozen Air

The cold air reaches the frigid bottom Freezing the hillside completely on through There’s nothing that you can do to stop it So frozen the trees start to snap in two Ice forms on many trees that are intact So cold the trees look so poor and distraught Landscape is so littered with snowy trees They look as if they’re frozen a whole lot There’s risk that they could fall at any time On a hillside that sure isn’t good news An avalanche could form from its falling Rolling down into town and right on through It’s so cold there’s a chance this could happen Trees have fallen with little more than this I would take heed and go around this hill And wait until this cold snap surely lifts

    that was a a fun line, that you will take heed and go around this hill. Very good idea. I would not want to get stuck in a icy hills like these!! I bet you have felt a cold snap. I once nearly froze my toes off just standing outside for five min. in an Iowa winter!

    Wow, the descriptions made me shiver! This cannot last too much longer, I hope......I'm wishing you a springtime that is just around the corner! Great poem!

    I've once witnessed a tree explode from the cold (that was on a visit to Yorkshire) and the flip side: pine trees exploding during a fierce fire which raged for six weeks on the wine farm where I was working at the time. I love this descriptive poem of yours, Russell. An awesome read. Happy Easter :-)
