Snow At Last

Poem By Herbert Nehrlich

Snowflakes, at last, and dancing gracefully,
announcing, in the innocence of white,
the season's purpose, its raison d'être.
Yes, do, go to Hawaii, escape!
where bones of sinister intent are pointed:
a stern and lukewarm welcome.

You do prefer the sun, so hot and giving life,
warmth of Mother Earth, a smiling face.
Yet cruel, unforgiving, destroying dew,
and mist and fog and water on pink petals.
And, enemy to cypress and pure snow.

Oh, that Frau Holle, snow Matron in the sky,
would shake her heavenly and promise-laden bedding,
with vigour and benign determination,
to cover me with soft and white and powdery fluff.
Comforting with its silent lullaby
in everlasting sleep for my salvation.

Such skills required.
And popular.

She stood, head bowed, long neck, wings drooping,
and motionless until she saw my face.
Damn, it was obvious, he had been truly slaughtered,

I was not looking when you found me
you stopped just long enough to smile.
I felt your presence all around me
and hoped that you would stay awhile.

A Little Bit Of Darkness

It had gone dark in my world.
An invisible sadness, one of substance
