The world through my window

Through the window there is a white world
Crisp, still and somehow unreal
Deep footprints lead from the back door
To the coal bunker and back again
No traffic on the road to the sandy beach
Just children oblivious to the cold
The robin that enters the house for food
Must now nurture itself plein air
And the blackbird, soloist of the sky choir
With joy gives thanks to all who listen

    Your poem creates an image similar to Norman Rockwell's artistry, Eamon. I smiled thinking how children do seem to be "oblivious to the cold." Especially love the creative description of the blackbird as a "soloist of the sky choir." Beautiful poem, my friend. Love, Carolyn
