Winter Night – a Palomar Poem

 

 

 

 

Winter Night- Palomar Mountain

by Kathy Lundy Derengowski   1/1/11

The mountain night is clear and cold

While we lie safe in bed

The owl calls his song of old

The coyote’s eyes glow red.

   The deer seek shelter from the chill

   A fast approaching storm

   The snow blows on the window sill

   While we, inside, are warm.

 The moonlight shimmers on the ground

 A blanket white and pure

 The stars keep their appointed rounds

 As we sleep safe and sure.

    The darkness has a rhythm sweet

    The winter is a poem

   And Palomar’s a song complete

   Our precious mountain home.

Enjoy the beautiful winter,

Love, Kathy
