  • The Robins arrived a week or so ago

    And were gathered in my carport

    For a meeting.

    When I came out the door

    To wade through snow

    On my way to the mailbox

    They flew away.
  • When I stood very still

    A few of them bravely came back

    Scratching in the snow.

    The mailbox was frozen shut

    With no tire tracks to be seen,
  • And Buddha sits in the snow
