The Morning Reading: "the wise trees stand sleeping in the cold"

Winter Trees
by William Carlos Williams

All the complicated details
of the attiring and
the disattiring are completed!
A liquid moon
moves gently among
the long branches.
Thus having prepared their buds
against a sure winter
the wise trees
stand sleeping in the cold.


(image: Ansel Adams)

Awe-full too! Maybe a forecast of tonight's freeze and tomorrow's white dawn?

Reminds me of ...

Margaret are you grieving?
Over Goldengrove unleaving?
