Winter's Blanket

Away from busy streets are nature’s reservoirs - beds of ground which by November have gone brown. Beneath a canopy of sparkling stars they’ll lie in peace when winter lays its velvet blanket down. November’s earthen beds, once fields of green, await the thick white quilt that flakes from sky will bring. How beautiful they’ll shine in moonlight. How pristine - until their blanket is removed by warmth of spring! Written 11/10/12 by Andrea Dietrich for Gail Angel Doyle's "Winter's Blanket" Poetry Contest

    Flake by flake, they'll melt away. Down the river this spring to play. Among the meadows so soft and lush. To bring life color in earths young blush. Have a nice winter Andrea, hope you like to ski or snowmobile or, well just have a nice winter. :)
