NOVICE, by                    
First Line: The arms of the elm
Last Line: In silver arabesque.
Subject(s): Writer's Block

The arms of the elm
Reach out in the storm,
Grotesquely groping,
Reaching for the wind.

Twinkling snow
Spins over the floor
Writing in silver tracery . . .

So gropes my pen
For words the heart does know
But cannot spin
In silver arabesque.
