The snow falls silently and deep……..

The snow falls

silently and deep.

The fire is banked,

the night will keep.

The owl is calling

from yonder tree.

Is it singing of its love

to the  Creator like me.?

The cabin floor creaks,

as I walk the floor.

Dawn is breaking.

I have to do more. 

The grain is chopped

and warming

in the water on the stove.

The cattle are restless

they are starting to move.

The night was long

in that Northern clime…

I farmed alone.

there was hardly time….

to miss my darling husband.

He was away working,

as farming hardly paid.

The winter deepened

Away he stayed.

In the enforced isolation

I learned a song or two.

The owl taught me

of the love of the Creator,

to not be blue. 

Many years have passed

since those cold snowy days.

I am warm and snug

in my fine city ways.

But, when the night is long,

and I do not sleep…

I remember.

The snow falls

silently and deep.

The fire is banked,

the night will keep.

The owl is calling

from yonder tree.

Is it singing of its love

to the  Creator like me?
