This Winter Snows

Earlier it came this season
Than in many of recent remembrance.
Not deeper, certainly colder,
It stays white.
Around here we take it in stride,
For the most part.
The chronic madness
in grocery stores
Goes on.
"Gonna snow!
Gotta have a chicken!"
Still, it joyfully swirls to earth in the lamplight.

Snow is Nature's way of telling you
That beauty can kill.
