A Blanket that Covers or a Cover-up?







A snowy blanket;
so pristine a cover.

Beautiful,
if not touched
Inviting,
if only to the eye
Pure,
won't let another show

The green and brown below,
bent under, frigid and cold,
make desperate pleas for the sun!
Does the throw look concerned?

A cover so unique!
Does it guard?
Does it warm?
Does it even care?
Touch 'n find
only if you dare.

wonderful poem, Id, sounds like a pretty song, if i were a musician would love to be able to make music to it

and i feel, like the snow and the blankets, has many layers to it

a pleasure to read you as always

Bonjour Id,

Lovely poem "beautiful if not touched". Splendid.

Inviting
If only to the eye:
sounds good, too,
budt fortunately not true.


Thanks for publishing this wintry oeuvre.

i love May Sarton! when the Gatos (my cats) behave OK, i read them some The Fur Person, the passages where the fur person, May's cat, eats catnip or other adventures, The Fur Person is a lovely book for any pet friendly person
