An early snow

An Early Snow
An early snow
In the high country
Under a low ceiling
Autumn still clinging to the trees

Winter gnaws at the bit
Eager, snorting
But the trees
Shed snow faster than leaves

In a few hours
The warm fall tones
Burn off the thin blanket of white
The proper season, restored

Colorado, United States of America
