And Start Again – by Gerard Murphy

We had some snow today

Not a lot but enough

To cover the lawn

And coat the branches

Of the trees

* * *

When I went out

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
