BLIZZARD, by                 Poet Analysis     Poet's Biography
First Line: Snow: / years of anger following
Last Line: Upon the world.
Subject(s): Snow

years of anger following
hours that float idly down --
the blizzard
drifts its weight
deeper and deeper for three days
or sixty years, eh? Then
the sun! a clutter of
yellow and blue flakes --
Hairy looking trees stand out
in long alleys
over a wild solitude.
The man turns and there --
his solitary track stretched out
upon the world.
