The Avalanche

The avalanche comes plunging down like ocean foam. How white the snow! King Mount casts off his lofty crown; the avalanche comes plunging down! It wraps pines' green and chilled earth's brown beneath its crushing roaring flow. The avalanche comes plunging down. Like ocean foam, how white the snow!

    There's something endearing about an avalanche. It's as if the mountain is cleansing itself, as captured by your fine words Andrea. Good luck in John's contest :)

    This poem reminds me of Mount Caradharas in "The Fellowship of the Ring" Nice rhyme scheme, too. Peace & Love Matthew Anish

    Andrea, great imagery and I really like the contrast of using of snow (cold mountains) to that of the ocean, typically warm. Good luck.
