Bold snowman stands

with anthracite button,

scarf, hat, and carrot nose


with stern, wan smile

as he sinks to ground

like parboiled politicians

of immemorial past.


As snow accumulates,

birds peck at feeder,

chatter and sing

of elemental joy


offered by

each wandering flake

dithering in its fall.
