I'll take the snow
though I'll ache
if I stay too long
and my eyes will tear.

Stripped away
are the leafing dreams
and the bones
of my plantings show through
spare in winter's light.

60 years of puning,
a dark line purposed in the white and pure.

A distant
dream of spring
lost under the snow
is too far to travel.

The bones will testify
to my memory.
