Softly

Softly steals the sun to sleep,

softly sun makes snowbanks weep;

feather-soft is evening breeze,

Winter’s brought to softened knees.

      And we went from so much snow to spring almost overnight – the robins and geese and ducks are happily singing away tonight – what balm to a winter-weary soul! There is still a lot to melt – but Wow! What a difference a day can make!

  9. so fun!! and beautiful at the same time–the “softened knees” of winter…what an image! I have an idea of a huge snowman with knees all of a sudden…
