"Winter" by Grandma Moses

by Aileen Fisher

I like days

with a snow-white collar
and nights when the moon 
is a silver dollar,
and hills are filled
with eiderdown stuffing
and your breath makes smoke
like an engine puffing.

I like days
when feathers are snowing,
and all the eves
have petticoats showing, 
and the air is cold
and the wires are humming,
But you feel all warm...
with Christmas coming.
