Poem – On the Ice (2000)

On the Ice

We stood on the lake
Frozen in January
The first year

Of the new millennium
Talking of computers
And the internet.

Just eight feet of water
Under our snow boots.
The dogs rolling, snow baths,

Pushing their snouts
On the ice
Pulling winter inside

Their bodies.
Maybe they thought
They could melt the cold

And bring summer sooner.
