Sudden Beauty

We turned out of bed


And forced ourselves

To move about

In the cold room...


The sheets still warm

From our love-making.


Afterwards,

When the lamps were on

And I was staring at your beauty,

Watching you combing out

Your long hair,

I looked out the window to see

Another enchanting tableau—


A gray world still asleep

In the sudden early snow.

Cuántas veces ha pasado que deseamos continuar en la cama, arropados por el ser amado, alargando la unión, el encuentro!! Me gusta la mirada que hay en este poema del adentro y el afuera: adentro hace calor, afuera frío! La mirada hacia afuera no solo habla de la belleza del paisaje sino también de la imposibilidad de salir de aquella habitación, del nido que es la cama. La naturaleza aveces juega a favor de los amantes!! Bonita noche, @johnjgeddes.

Tan cierto, Nancy - El deseo es un fuego y, sorprendentemente, también lo es la belleza de una nevada temprana que arde con una miríada de diamantes que se queman al tacto :)

Beautiful poem ... I can feel the snow is coming.
