Snow and the Chance of It
It's going to snow acknowledgeably,
they say, and is already snowing above the clouds.
Though none ever dare to say it aloud,
as the weather behaves so changeably,
and the same report just goes on and on,
how difficult it is to heed the warning
when the same one has been issued each morning
for three days and may be, already, gone.
Folks tend to lighten up when they don't know
what's to come. Clouds may mass out of sight
or, afterwards, come in a different light
as they redevelop, there, in silent show
of hidden strength—as Alexander's rear,
holding back—and, suddenly, draw near.
