How can a reader of poetry resist fresh

...bird tracks? Fresh bird tracks in the fresh snow! So out I went with a couple books I haven't mentioned here yet, though I did on Facebook some time ago. And since it's poetry month I thought this would be the perfect time. Alas

The Poetry of Derek Walcott 1948-2013, selected by Glyn Maxwell.
Emily Dickinson The Gorgeous Nothings, edited by Marta Werner and Jen Bervin. 

before I could find a pleasing composition*, a vehicle pulled up dead ahead of this shot, just beyond the treeline, and sat there. No vehicles sit there. I was exposed. I grabbed the books and escaped around the side of the house. I barely had time to shovel the snow off the step before they came to the door. By then I was on the other side.  


*The books (both of which I am enjoying immensely) are sitting on a container, but I didn't sink it down far enough, so they appear to be hovering. That was not intended.
