Bitter midwinter day
Icy sidewalks, snowy foothills.
A woman eats gelato. Brrr!
The school playing field is green
Where midwinter snow has melted.
Red moon rises
Above glittering streets
Dogs are barking.
Luminarios flicker on adobe walls
Star is shining above tree of light
Ice sparkles, Rio Pueblo glistens
Cottonwoods glow golden
Against the indigo sky.
