... We must all walk the same path.
During the first couple days, the pale blanket of snow
was beautiful to look at. However frigid, it allowed
the sun to shine and gleam, giving a sparkle
to our everyday surroundings. Now, thankfully,
the temperatures have risen and the snow's filthy reality
leaves us masses of the stuff. It's stacked and piled
just about everywhere a shovel, snow-blower,
or plow could find. And it's dirty, making cold,
gray slush at curbs and corners that people must walk
through as they cross intersections.
