not a sound to warn us
no sense of time when we awoke
what a surprise to see
the flocked trees and white roofs
when we looked outside
where was this two months ago?
and will there truly be more tonight as they say?
the young leaves and buds are shivering
and even now, as it has melted
what will the continuing cold do
to our new spring greens?
still – this beauty was so peaceful
