Poem for Our Youth

ewippermann's picture

We're old
enough to know
we're young,
this winter's snow
shining far as
we can see
which isn't far
but sure is
Nothing is
as pure as this 
and it isn't.
However we walk
soft this solstice 
through our mother's
bare forests
whiter than our
mind before dreams.  
The sky darkens
early and our
parents sleep.
I hold your
hand and
we go bravely
into that
