Winter in Texas

Winter in Texas

Shards of icy glass shroud the hardy tree

Who waves his distress silently glassy

Now I understand why these trees are

Natural to this land

They can bear the intemperate climate

And still not turn a hair

They can bruise in winter, batter the storms

Unfed,unwatered, untended , can still survive

To see another season, another year, another life .
