The Snow, a Short Poem

As we dwell on the wintry theme of snow, here's yet another brief poem inspired by it. As dormant memories intertwine with wistful oblivion, the entangled soul, suspended in time, is appeased.    

The Snowstorm, by Abraham Teerlink (1776-1857), Dutch

The Snow

The snow falls relentlessly, impalpable,
light butterflies land on my heart.

As they wings flutter,
my window turns opaque.

In the end, I am ten years of age,
as the snow relentlessly falls.

  1. There's a lightness throughout the poem that evokes the snowy atmosphere
