Volume III, No. 2, Winter 1975
Poem and photographs by Jim Baldwin
The mantle of winter cloaking all in its powdery robe.
the shapes of the countryside.
Muting the sounds
of Nature and her creatures.
The color of winter
overpowering all with its monotony.
of the dormancy that winter brings.
Giving new perspective
to all that it surrounds.
The texture of winter abrasive against the skin.
The wind is its courier
delivering it at the doorstep. Chilling the bones of the impoverished
while the wealthy relish the warmth.
