July 2nd……….“WAS THERE ANOTHER GENTLE WINTER EVENT, ON YOUR FARM NEAR KIESTER, MINNESOTA, THAT YOU REMEMBER FONDLY AS A YOUNG BOY”?
POEM – “A Gentle Winter’s Night” created by N. Elliott Noorlun. When I first penned this on October 17th, 2019, I mused upon how, sometimes, snowfall on our farm at night was so deeply quiet and gentle as it fell out of a black velvet sky and past the golden glow of our single yard lamp at the top of a tall pole. The tungsten filament of that yard lamp turned the immediate snowflakes to a golden amber, adding a rich effect to an already peace-laden moment. 😉
On many a gentle, Winter’s night,
Illumined by single, Yard pole light,
I’d venture forth, As a peaceful snow,
Would glide to earth, In an amber glow,
From tungsten filament, Causing each flake,
To turn to gold, For beauty’s sake.
Quietness reigned, Supreme on our farm,
In those cherished moments, Of Winter snow’s charm.
