Giorgio Venetopoulos

(Athens, Greece)

Anne of Snow

Unalterable became, cold's Anne of snow;
Of winter laughs and aves in modes of white;
With stare conceivable and face to glow.

In everlasting streams of mirth and flow;
Orison's company betimes forthright;
Unalterable became, cold's Anne of snow;

What is important to keep tight, and stow
Ghost nuptial forms of Sunday's blue shore bight,
With stare conceivable and face to glow.

In silence comes, her white quilt to bestow;
my winter's solitude and dreams' benight;
Unalterable became, cold's Anne of snow;

White blanket to descend, silent and slow;
The sovereign deep woods, in wordless rite;
With stare conceivable and face to glow.

Retention of her intellect to show,
Perceptual is her entity and plight;
Unalterable became, cold's Anne of snow;
With stare conceivable and face to glow.

Poem of the Day

poet Wilfred Owen

All sounds have been as music to my listening:
Pacific lamentations of slow bells,
The crunch of boots on blue snow rosy-glistening,
Shuffle of autumn leaves; and all farewells:
