Stopping By Woods On A Snowy Evening ( After Robert Frost )

The path I walk is winter white
reflective on this moonlit night † †  
o're field and glade I slowly crept † †  
††to not disturb or cause a fright † †  
† †  
the animals who might've slept † †  
† had not I tread within my step † †
peaceful slumber deep in dreams † †  
† by snapping wood of broken twig † †  
† †  
Startling their eve routines † †
† in depth of burrow and trunk of trees † †  
or high in branch under sky † †
† curled all warm with families † † †
† †  
Woodland creatures far and wide † †
††watched my trek with open eyes † †
questioned motives in their minds † †
††but I just pause with wink and smile † †  
~ † †
