Welcome to Sunday Poetry. If this is your first visit you can read about the purpose and inspiration of my Sunday poetry blogs here.
All that lovely warm weather, then suddenly winter. I’ve saved Shoveling Snow for just the right moment, and this surely is the one. It’s an enchanting poem. I may be a Floridian at heart, but even I know the beauty of shoveling that first snowfall each year. Kirsten Dierking captures it perfectly for us. What would you notice “inside the muffle and hush?”
Remember there are no quizzes here, no right ways to read or contemplate the poem we share. Absolutely no dissecting allowed. Just come along for the “read.” What line, word or thought will you carry with you this week? If you’d like to tell us where the poem took you? We’ll listen.
