And There They Were

And there they were,

as snow,

wet and heavy,

laced the trees 

with essence of white.

 

They arrived together,

his red,

her brown,

he made sure 

she was fed,

down to the ground,

and up again,

 a seed delivered.

 

And then came others,

black capped,

gray slated,

blue jayed,

darting flakes,

large and full,

filling the yard, 

the trees,

the air.

 

He called,

she listened,

and they were gone,

into white,

and gone.
