We had some snow today

Not a lot but enough

To cover the lawn

And coat the branches

Of the trees

The sun was bright

Lending a beautiful iridescence

To the landscape

I brought a camera

And tried to capture

A few moments of that beauty

Before it melted

Snow covers everything

And lends its beauty

And as it melts

Uncovers the leaves

That weren’t raked last fall

So we’ll rake them

In the spring

When the sun

Is growing strong

And we are inspired

To clean up autumn’s leaves

And start again
