Shoveling Snow | A Poem by J.K. Durick

This cold holds us down
Snow this deep must go

And so, we begin again
Again, the plow goes by

Filling our mouth so full
Knee deep again, I bend

To lift all seventy years of
Snow, and one shovel full

Feels the weight of time
Of distances I have been in

Of seasonal jobs I did, I do
The grass is waiting under

This snow lawn, this storm
And this cold holds us out

Here, assigns momentary
Tasks, I’m mending what

Nature has done this time
And promises to do again.
