Knoepfle 9-23-04

sandalwood poem #20  

it was the marriage day
some forty-seven years now
and out beyond my window
an amazement of christmas snow
cottonwood tree sudden with frost

I remember when we left the church
our morning hesitant with snowflakes
and some of them caught in her hair
the dark innocence of her hair
