In winter, when the grass is white
and you look for the green,
you do not look totally bright
distrusting what is seen.
Astonishment changes the face
into a sheepish grin
when things you knew in this same place
seem not at all akin.
You lose your face if you cannot
appear all fine and dandy.
You just ask others then “So what –
ice on a blade comes handy!”
