Short Winter Poems


wind freeing the snow
from evergreen branches

sun spotlights
snowflakes on the window
falling stars

tree branches
and winter white sky
poem on the page

reading one page
at a time
of this book and that
in gentle wind

new year
on the horizon
simple lines
of barns and trees
in the fog

Ellen Grace Olinger

Selected poems are from Quiet Christmas Poetry (both a site and large print chapbook).
