The Linnet's Wings The Winter´s Tale, Ravens and Robins - Page 81

Ravens and Robins The Light Of Snow by Dolores Duggan Silver slivers of light shine Amid the frozen glass Panes above my bed. Legs entwined lightly. Bed clothes dim the sounds Of the winter. Outside silence is loud In its absence . Time the rise and fall Of your chest. In the dark. Light from snowfall And ice. Cocooned As The cat stretches in his bed And Later on, he stands at the door. Keening to escape . Birds awaken and chirp. We made love. Then we made coffee. 81
