Dove sky morning
Full breasted, feathered gray.
Downy flakes in stillness hover,
Rosy pearl break of day.
Calligraphy of twigs
Black bold against the drowsy sky.
Soughing pines gently quiver
With the snowy lace applied.
Rouse from slumber,
Cardinal shock of red, peaked cap.
Winged flower of winter stirs.
Confidence awakens from her nap.
