News says snow,

But not for centuries 

Has the cold-winged white

Knelt palms

To the square
 I've led them,

"Learn, now,

What is proper."

Photographs, indecorous,

Headlines, pearls for pigs,

Circus creatures, genteel, cower easy,

Twitch and blitz brown forests

No! (Only whisper.)

Snow comes in silence

Is only ever seen

With eyes closed.
