Picnic in the Snowpoetic

 

The tree leans against winter

like the urge of change

against a mind

bare of questions.

 

Beneath this tree

we

two

brush snow from a rock.

 

We make a table there.

We celebrate

under branches

of a winter dying tree.

 

Mary Louise Cox, poet laureate of the Town and Village of Mamaroneck
