A Winter Villanella.

a poem by Denis Barter, Canada - poetry writer, author, poet

Overnight the snows fell:
sometimes heavy, sometimes light,
drifting o’er hill and dell.

Winds heralded a colder spell:
dawn, a sparkling sight.
Overnight the snows fell.

Clear chimes from a distant bell,
signal more arrives tonight,
drifting o’er hill and dell.

Silence reigns; that bodes well.
The moon, in muted flight:
overnight the snows fell.

Winter’s here, as signs tell:
snow dervishe's delight,
drifting o’er hill and dell.

Older folks stay where they dwell,
by their fireside, warm and bright.
Overnight the snows fell,
drifting o’er hill and dell.

Rhymer. December 11th, 2018.
Making the most of winter weather! Ciao Denis.
