Watching Snow

Watching Snow
by William Marr

As the footprints in the snow
get deeper and deeper
they become harder and harder
to comprehend

Falling on the feverish face of
a homesick boy
the snow melts and turns into
a warm tropical shower

A sudden toll
of the steeple bell
shakes down
the snow
from the Cross
