Best Deb Radke Poems

+ Fav Poet

slips of spring

an icicle
drip, drip, dripping away
slips of spring

sunlight gleams
winter garb cast aside
petticoats flash

rays of gold
glistening on the glen
flicks of foxtails

mewling mouths
nuzzle at their mother
come spring



[“petticoats” in this instance are meant to signify 
glistening white snow, hidden beneath gray snow banks, 
and exposed suddenly by early spring sunshine.]
