Subject(s): Storms


Low in the west, the sun imparts a glow
Of winey red to the quiescent world.
The storm is over. Now the smoke is curled
From lighted hearths through chimneys couched in snow.
The long drifts ranged in horizontal bands
Bear on their crests an ornamental frieze
And from scant shelter of the leafless trees
The junco makes his querulous demands.
For every hour of storm there is a calm
Of deep import; fear not the storm but know
Where hearths are tended, there content will grow
And in fruition yield an ageless balm
And every storm that blows on land or sea
Is ever followed by tranquility.
