5 Feet of Snow

5 feet of snow 

Sits around my house.

Apple trees hold snow

On their limbs

Like heart crossed  lovers.

 

5 feet of snow

Covers the ground

Like a white

Mink coat my momma wears.

 

5 feet of snow

Can be a blessing

And a condemnation.

The snow saves

The snow kills.

 

The apple trees know

How many will fall.

How may will provide nutrients for their roots.

In 5 feet of snow.
