Images of snow – february 1996

snow is a thousand flowers
The chinese probably said
Hundreds and thousands this morning
Drop their garlands on my head
Last night the festoons started
Long before we went to bed

Snow is a white-furred rabbit
The chinese probably wrote
Hedgerows and fields this morning
Wear a similar fluffy coat
Last night the winter danced back
With a white fur round its throat

Snow is a treacherous fox-face
The chinese probably thought
It lurks in wait this morning
For the weak and overwrought
Last night it laughed its head off
Loving the fear it’s brought
