The End of the Road
Where I live, winter
is known for deep snow, summer
for swans in the cove.

One thought on “NEAR PROVIDENCE 24.4.22”
The reader re-sees the snow as swans and experiences the shfit of consciousness of staying still as the seasons change. the poem is itself an occasion of creative stability.
