THE SNOW-LADEN PINE
By: Mary T. Hoffman

Published 27 August 1977 in The Daily Mail (Catskill, NY)

The stoic pine stands patient, tall,
With boughs outstretched to catch the fall
Of swirling snow on its descent
From sky to limbs all burden-bent.

He knows the sun's warm rays will shine
Once more to thaw his awesome weight;
Then imperceptibly the pine
Will lift his arms to celebrate.
