1.
I wouldn’t have known
That it snowed overnight
If I hadn’t cleared the walk yesterday
I woke to a sheen
A sparkling, barely a glaze
Just enough
For the fairies
To slip on.

2.
The weather report
Is calling it nuisance snow
That will start and stop
And start and stop
And start
And stop
Before ending for good
Days from now
No accumulation predicted
(we’ll see)
Just a nuisance

3.
Do I count it
As two snowfalls?
Or just one
It stopped after all,
for two hours
between the end of
the overnight sparkle
And the start of a heavier fall
That covered
The slipping fairies

Every Snowfall, No. 10 and 11
about 2=3″
