Dreams on a Winter Afternoon



Outside the white house in the valley
Mice, in their burrows, are dreaming of seeds
Sheep, dozing in the field, dream of new hay
Insects, frozen in earth, dream of buggy things
While the barn cats dream of the hunt

Inside the white house in the valley
The artist dreams of murmuring bees
Chirping birds, wind in the trees
Leaves and flowers poking through the snow
All creation reawakening from its winter slumber

Inside the white house in the valley
The artist awakens from her dreams
Sips cold coffee and then prepares her palette
A dream made real in pigment on canvas
A dream of Nature’s First Green


for SLM.

Very nice, Batty. Spring seems like a very distant, unreachable dream about now.
