February Snow

 February snow

Falls in flat flakes,

Lacy angels

From a white sky.

 Birds gather,

Waiting in

Trees that wear

Cold white coats,

Dreaming wistfully

of Spring and leaves.

The feeder is a busy café,

Dark starlings and

Red-winged blackbirds

Taking a spot at the counter…

And still, the snow falls.

  1. Lynne, your poem captures the beauty of falling snow. I am sure the birds welcome the food they don’t have to search too hard for. I know the birds at our feeder are glad for what I put out for them.
