    SILENCE OF SNOW

    SILENCE OF SNOW

    I stand watching the light from
    the tall window. As it turns
    the blowing snow slightly blue,
    it whispers through;
    going from white to blue to white.

    A small boy’s breath frosts the pane
    as he draws hearts and flowers,
    X,s and O,s .
    The glass is a transparent window
    to his soul. It is as silent as the
    falling snow; if the falling
    darkness matters.

    The small hand turns the glass sphere
    and the snow storm whirls within.
    I silently remember and watch
    as the light turns the snow slightly blue.

    When power leads man towards arrogance, poetry reminds him of his limitations. When power narrows the area of man's concern, poetry reminds him of the richness and diversity of existence. When power corrupts, poetry cleanses.

    John F. Kennedy (1917-1963) Thirty-fifth President of the USA
