Sunday Morning
On Sunday the snow came to blanket us
and we needed a blanket
after a wild and wonderful
Saturday night,
none of us easily convinced
it was time to call it
a night ... and God what a night.

Like weary Saturday soldiers,
we laid down our arms and gave up
and gave in towards dawn
surrendering the empty champagne glass
the cognac, the cabernet, to coffee.

We were at last quieted
supine in a sweet slumber
the snowy comforter
fell all around us saying
"Hush ... "
