Ode to Snow


Poem Commentary

My first poem of snow... January of 2010

Ode to Snow

Though it is night, the light is astounding
All is clear, all is expounding
I look toward the lights, the snow still falls
Building this mound of beautiful walls
I cannot describe the joy it brought me
To see the snow fall, so gracefully

Coating my world with the purest of whites
Shining divine, bringing the brightest of lights
Showing me a world that was otherwise hidden
Showing me a time that has no woes, no burden
Hiding the signs of troubles and responsibilities
Covering my land with a purpose of safe keeping

And the next morning, as the sun does shine through
I notice a sparkle, a glare if I am to be true
The light, though blinding, was pure as could be
As the snow, sitting so still, in its eternal beauty
My lonely soul cannot refuse such beauty divine
And joy coats my heart, in this happiest of times

I am there......looking out the window at the snow falling gently down....a clear sky even with the snow-filled clouds floating around so brazenly......the trees gathering in the white stuff, like a farmer shearing sheep.....just a beauty to behold. This is what makes it worth reading poems on this site, dear girl.......

The true philosopher and the true poet are one, and a beauty, which is truth, and a truth, which is beauty, is the aim of both.

Ralph Waldo Emerson, American Poet (1803-1882)
