Nature’s Vanishing Specter


Nature’s Vanishing Specter

I woke up this morning with snow all around

On the trees on the road and covering the ground


A magnificent site of brilliant white

Covering the earth what a wonderful sight


Reflected glory on creek and limbs

Virginal blanket where no footprints have been

Green daffodil stems and red buds showing

We thought it was spring but now it’s snowing


Don’t worry this specter soon will pass

Life in the South means it won’t last


By three o’clock the snow was crying

The grass is green and the sun is shining


This ghost was gone it had no body

A specter of white just trying to be naughty
