Poem by Brenda Kay Ledford
Snowflakes twirl feathers across the Shewbird Mountain. The Matheson Cove glows under a satin sheet. Cotton balls cling to fir trees, icicles hang from the roof of the log cabin. I grab Ma Minnie Ledford’s dishpan. Reba, Rena, Robenia, and I scoop pure white snow, pour sugar and vanilla flavoring into the pan to make snow cream. A Full Wolf Moon casts gold on Chunky Gal Mountain. My husband hitch-hikes from the CCC’s to spend Christmas with family.
