Snow Fence

Snow Fence

The red fence
takes the cold trail
north; no meat
on its ribs,
but neither has it
much to carry.

~ Ted Kooser

It seems a little strange to be posting this poem on a day when it is 60 degrees outside.  I guess you could say it's wishful thinking -- I am still hoping we get some real snow around here this winter!  I love the image painted by this poem, and I'm guessing I will see skinny ribs whenever I look at a fence from now on....
