Winter Lane

Rue de Voisins  Camille Pissarro – 1871

The weight of accumulated days

of winter

is borne by pedestrians’ tread

Skeletal trees

point up to a pale sky,

frail shadows are drawn on impassive walls,

hard-hearted frosted grasses sheen chill,

cobbled streets hold the day’s coldness

 

Winter’s stoicism must persist

  1. I find you to be a very talented poet. I love this one, up here in the Rocky Mountains the nights are getting cold and I’ve had winter on my mind a lot lately. I love this poem.

    This is the absolute best!
