····at midnight—a thousand pools under a thousand
The warm February afternoon was followed by a storm at nightfall. The winds blew the tins off my woodpile, roared in the trees, and pools of water collected in the snow. Tomorrow we’ll have to fire the wood stove again. After a winter’s beginning, February’s weather is fitful and unsettled. A cold day tomorrow will be followed by another warm stretch. Spiders and beetles come out of slumber too early.
