The Winter Tree

The Winter Tree

The winter tree
Is fast asleep.
She dreams, in reams
Of snow knee-deep,
Of children climbing
Up her trunk,
Of white-tailed deer
And gray chipmunk,
Of picnics,
And short sleeves,
And leaves
  And leaves
    And leaves
      And leaves.

~Douglas Florian, Winter Eyes
