Default Free Verse - Nature Sleeps, The Earth Abides


<Walt Whitman>

Look upon the snow
Nature sleeps, the Earth adibes
I sense the life beneath the cold
Oh sleeping mammals, great and small --- hear me!

The cold in my lungs, the grip of wintern in my veins
I am asleep yet I am awake
For I am the winter and the cold and the frost

Look upon my work, oh men!
Look upon my dream, oh men!

Nature Sleeps, the Earth adibes

</Walt Whitman>
