the medallion…poem 6

she always loved snow…never saw it till she moved north…all it took was the first ground cover and she was hooked…liked watching children build snowmen…was in wonderment over it’s looks on pine trees in her backyard…made everyday seem like Christmas at first…then the cold winds of January set-in…she was not as enamored…

the skies were dark throughout winter…months marched slowly in the Midwest…her husband was on the road five days a week…she was left alone to her own devices…which was nothing more than eating and sleeping…and more eating and sleeping…she did not have a job…no friends…just an empty house four nights a week…four nights of no one to talk to but herself…and the pines…the pines…

stood at the kitchen sink eating cake and looking out the window…talking to the trees…she spoke to the leafless oak…a maple in the back corner…but her most charming conversations were with those snow covered pines…they listened to her every word…she read Bible verses to them…the pines loved the story of Joseph and his famous coat of many colors…the celebration his father had for him upon his return…the brothers dismay…it was her favorite story too…

she loved fairy tales…
