White Against White
Poem By Ernestine Northover
A polar bear treads warily across the ice,
In search of food.
Anything that he can acquire, would well suffice,
If something’s viewed.
Out in this vast isolated arctic expanse,
Where winds howl loud.
He waits, aloof, facing the roar in solid stance,
So strong and proud.
White against white, is seen, in this cold world of snow.
He travels far.
Cruising this frosted landscape where blue waters flow.
His Shangri La.
