FALL 2007

Robin Shectman


The moon comes late,
sends in the snow before it,
whipping the hillside
into busy froth,
trees iced to reflection,
prepared; the moon's
known better days,
strong enough then
to rattle the night
without this trickery,
layered make-up,
white against the creases
of blue time.
