A Refuge

Before the winds return
driving great sheets of snow,
it’s good to find a refuge.
Look for a curve at the base
of a sturdy tree where the roots
rise like arms to protect you.
Huddle there with your companions
and make up songs to sing
against the storm. And the tree,
ancient and strong, will sing
with you and keep you from harm.
