Snow in April

The air is thick, shaded dull gray-brown,

No more invisible, the atmosphere fills the landscape,

Like a great, all-encompassing lens;

The colours everywhere are muted –

Muffled by the restless snowflakes swirling

The pale sun glints wearily upon a bewildered earth

Too distant and withdrawn to resist the white;

And the fields that just hours ago were muddy bare –

Dotted in hopeful puddles,

Now host the swirling eddies of baffling snow

Drifts of determined ice

Clinging to gravel roads and ditches,

These lingering vestiges of winter

That even April cannot banish.
