White snow and bad girl boots

Slow Melt
Annette Marie Hyder

As the temperature rises
there is a slow striptease removal
of white lacy things.

Streams and inlets swell
rivulets roll dreamily
as the snow melts in a long sigh

breathes softly against the stiff wind
and all the while Winter wears
her thigh-high boots.

She wont take them off
till Spring comes.
