Together In The Snow

Together In The Snow

First snow lies on holly leaves dark,
Amongst the cloudy foliage of roadside hedges.

Two fawns stop and peer at us.. and at a bound, faster than the swiftest hound,
Leap through the weak and falling light to safety.


Out in the dark, over the snow, his footprints trail away.
He is not here now tho’ time – standing still – be just the same.

And I and star and wind and deer,
Are in the dark together near.
Yet far.

We think that happiness must be something else..
Something greater than this walk together in the snow.

The dark comes and goes, in light and shadow
making invisible what we know.

That life and light and love are there,
Together in the snow.

With the posthumous help of Edward Thomas.
