Snow Snatched


We encircled her
That February day.
Amid sustaining whir 
She lay.

Had I known
The hollow was to come
I’d be there still
Hearing the hum.

Her feet were cold
I tried to warm them
She lay so still
Mine own sweet gem.

Her brain they said
Beyond all function.
The friar led the
Extreme unction.

Oh damn that day
With its bright big sun
We loved the snow.
Look what it’s done.

    What a very tragic but well written poem. And yet it is written so cleverly that there could be a hidden and less tragic meaning revealed through the last stanza. I would really love to know more about this poem.

    Oh my goodness... I thought sadness/tragedy... and then... well, I guess if you're a kid, it's pretty tough... Terry (another nice one Kathy!)

    Hi Kathy - The contrast of the love of the snow and the outcome of its effects is an excellent sharp contrast. So is the reason you were there that day with the beautiful sun. Love the way you show this to the reader. - Gail

    I can tell a poem of yours from a mile away! This is so cute... sad, but cute! Dissolution can be such a bummer! Love, Keith
