Beck Siàn: Listen

And the Snow Cloaks Silently

And the Snow Cloaks Silently

Silence above

A puff of painful breath.

White crunching under foot and paw,

Hoof and claw.

The robin on the branch

Puffed up and ruffled

Blood-like, blood-like.

The whole world seems to have

Stopped to look up at the

Dirty swan-feather and cygnet-down sky:

To listen

As the fluffy white falls and cloaks silently.
