Winter in Maine

January's Snows

Winter whispers, breath of snow
Light the fire, embers glow.
Crystals hung in frosty boughs
Touch our hearts and test our vows.

Let the children come and play
School is for another day.
Breathe in deep the Winter's air
bright white snow is everwhere.

Leave your cares and woes behind
Spring is far, but we don't mind.
For on this perfect Winter day,
With sleds and boots, we'll make our way.


  1. This hasn't turned out as I wanted it dispalyed on the page. I can't get it to center properly. I hope this doesn't distract from the feeling the poem and photo were intended to create.
