Icy Brook by Shannon McHone

There is a song amid the silence of the woods

which is played one season here

The instruments are well worn in this orchestra

dancing under sleeping trees

Hikers and bikers and bird watchers rest,

like the animals underground

Who sees this winter ensemble and listens as it calls?

For anyone that happens past,

awakens by it all
