A Gradual Undressing- a poem

melty 3As she takes off her winter dress

A gradual undressing

Her pristine blankets draw back

Layer by layer

To reveal here sapphire-blue glacier,

There snippets of summer-green dress

Bedecked with yellow Alpines

And lazy, early bees.

EveningAt times dramatic

Avalanchine unrobing

A grand gesture

To shock and awe.

Then back to the slow strip-tease – just that – Hour on hour, day on day, a melting away,

Her rivers begin again to flow.

 

another

Myself a speck in folds of ermine

Skiiing where she permits

I marvel at the change in her

Permitted a side seat in the witnessing of

This glorious unrobing.
