New Year's Greetings


The year slipped into the woods

unnoticed, except by the stars looking down from above.

The deep snow must have muffled its steps

and the frigid winds trapped its voice

while they kept us  buried

under layers and layers of quilts

behind sealed windows and doors.

  1. A beautiful poem as the New Year is ushered in. We do not have the snow to muffle the sound as our grass that usually is white during this season is now green and the hay in the field across the road is yellow and brown. Hoping 2014 will be a wonderful year to you and yours.
