Winter Wood

How many are your works, LORD! In wisdom you made them all; the earth is full of your creatures.

Psalm 104:25

Winter wood in snow knee-deep;
as red fox snoozes, fast asleep.

Chickadee wears a winter’s muff, 
sings sweet tune so grand a stuff;
dapper snow falls, powder to fluff.

Feathers fine as winter flower;
fluff flakes in fine snow shower,
tiny wings hold such great power.

Squirrel scampers looking for more
power strides, seeking winter’s store;
climbing, carousing white forest floor.

Tiny paws dig in frosty, frozen land.
Floor rumbles slowly spills like sand;
grey tail swishes and swirls so grand.

Six stately deer afoot in icy winter pond,
grand a sight, a herd with nature’s bond.
What doth sneaks and moves beyond!

Snow settles on a coarse deer hide.
Then, beyond the wood they now glide;
sauntering from lunch with such stride.

Winter wood settles and stills; when
fox pokes his nose up from his den.
