First Ice

.

Today as we walked along the river,

the hard dry frozen ground

held wilted still green plants.

Out of the north

the wind had a bite

as fast-moving clouds

playing with the sun

and us

giving first

just a hint of warmth

then not.

While ducks swam in frigid air,

small birds hid,

and the river continued its flow

leaving near waters edge

the seasons calling card.
