To the beautiful snowman across the street

Oh, elegant Mr. Snowman, thank you for your
jaunty self—cool, standing embodiment of
beguiling temporariness!

And yes, I know, you’ll remember the day
you accepted beret and bright red scarf the
children wrapped around your neck for warmth; that

in the March sun,these waning days of winter,
you’ll come to the crux of the paradox of Life.

  1. Hi Margaret – next year I will build my first snowman and face him toward the children next door. Thanks for your incentive. M
