Day Nineteen: 'Snowdrops' by Jo Langton


robes of pure white shroud
frosted flakes hypnotic whirls
shiver shudder cold

nimble footprints in
crisp snow. Gleaming kids sledging
swerve and slip and slide

perfect white blankets
snow faeries shine in the night
bitter cold: wrap up!

Children play, gleeful
snowballs flying over head
wet socks by the fire

Jo Langton
