a winter poem

This morning's poem over at The Writer's Almanac was perfect for this tree lover on the dawn of December. I figured I would share it with those who don't subscribe, and also, just to keep it here to revisit every so often. Thank you, Linda Pastan. I haven't been writing too much lately, but when I get to read poems that say so eloquently what I might want to say, sometimes it is just more fun to read!

This poem is stunning. I love the ode to the vertical, the sights you have captured, the hit it out of the park with your closing line. Wowzers!
