WINTER STORM
by M. Linda Steffey

The Geese fly with the snow on their wing
Across the pale of a moon....
And the snow fills the steams and the hushed wild wood
And sits on the fur of Raccoon;

Old Owl hoots to his near-by-mate
And silently leaves his tree
And off they fly on a mid-night-hunt
Quietly wild and free;

Pine and Fir scent the chilled night air
As a wonderous Star shines down
On three dainty deer who drink from the stream
Without even the slightest sound;

The Wind in the Fir whispers to the Birds
Who sleep 'neath new fallen snow
And they nestle in for a Winter's nap
On a branch all in a row;

And Wolf gives a howl to ages long passed
And Bear stirs in her sleep
And the Deer bound away in the soft light of Moon
Safe in the wood's velvet deep...

The rise of the Wind drowns out the Geese
And it roars in it's Winter tune
The Creatures settle in for a Winter's sleep
While the Snow covers up the Moon...

(c) M. Linda Steffey 1998
