First Snow

bicycling in snow

“facing the window where the sun plays
the tabla of the thin cold air
and the snow sings soprano
and the emerging earth drones bass.”
~ from “Snow, snow” by Marge Piercy

Of course I had to try it
Deep snow over ice
Not the best first time out
It was fun riding over mounds
Snow plows left behind
And fishtailing down a hill
Cuz you gotta see the fun where you can
When it’s winter in Minnesota
