‘Tis the Season

See this link for  Noel by Linda Pastan, today’s poem at the Writer’s Almanac.

I like Pastan’s poem very much. It says a great deal with a very few words.

In response to her poem, here below is my poem December Snow. This is a first draft. But it gives you the idea. And it’s what I was thinking about walking home from downtown this afternoon  – new fresh clean snow on the ground from yesterday and the temperature a nippy minus 6 C.

December snow

wraps upG.F. Handel

everything today; slowly
makes

gifts of us
all to

each other
while crows flap around,

black notes
on a white orchestral score —

their Hallelujah chorusing like
bazookas

<ee>

Here is a well done video by Jeremy Larter about what happens in Charlottetown…listen to the crows.

Oh and here’s the Hallelujah Chorus with Andre Rieu and friends…and even the words.
