Hats of Snow

A muffled sound of wings,
As from its branch a crow
Shakes down on me
A cloudy spray of snow.

The spider’s web a fishing line;
Floaters of white hang, stable
Waiting for sun to set them free,
Like birds perched on a cable.

Streets with icing sugar,
Bicycles and railings show,
How a city turns pretty,
When it dons a hat of snow.

Floaters of white hang, stable

Waiting for sun to set them free,

Like birds perched on a cable.

Bicycles and railings show,
How a city turns pretty,

When it dons a hat of snow.

    Beautiful Snow Pictures of Dublin and Dutch Bikes.A lot of People out and about Yesterday Saturday on their Bikes in spite of the Snow.

    I cycled into the City for the National Day of Demonstration against the Government and I kept meeting People I knew on Bikes Cycling either into the City or else going about their Business.

    I met a couple more while walking down from Christchurch on the Demo all with their Bicycles. In fact on all the Protest Marches I have been on recently People have brought their Bikes,it is a growing Phenomenon in Dublin great to see.

    Wow, beautiful winter photos in spite of the cold weather.
    I remember my home town where there were lots of snow and things covered by more snow than Dublin, your town.
    Thanks.
