Poetry #481
(published April 8, 2010)
Winter Night Oahu
by Alice Folkart
No snow
you know on this island
just the last bird
twitting in the palm
making his bed
in the balm of a warm evening
tucking head under wing
leaving me to sing
the sun down

Alice Folkart says, "Sometimes I wish for a little snow, a little frost, here in Hawaii, and then I remember how lucky I am. This poem is all about that sad-happy situation."
