"Winter" by William Carlos Willimas

Now the snow
lies on the ground
and more snow
is descending upon it-
Patches of red dirt
hold together
the old
snow patches

This winter -
rosettes of
leather-green leaves
by the old fence
and bare trees
marking the sky-

This is winter
winter, winter
leather-green leaves
in the falling snow
