Featured poet! W. R. Hill

William “Bill” Hill is a wonderful, lesser-known poet from a small town in Pennsylvania. I love his short, simple poems with themes on the quiet beauty of nature and the small joys and truths of life.

The poem and cover are from his book “A Ditty Will Do”

Theme week: Nature Personified – 1

Gentle Winter

The winter washes white
Across the mountains, and
Its breath upon the land
Blows frost into he night.
It whispers to the rain
To slow its forceful fall,
And, at the pleaful call,
Drift down upon the plain.
It sings a sweet duet
Upon the crispen breeze
With all the swaying trees
Of how they first had met.
It curls into the hair
Of people passing by,
With just a gentle sigh
To say that it was there.

Slipping on Snow

“Be careful.”

“Oh, I don’t see why,”
She chuckled, slipping
On the snow, and I
Kept rocking forth
And tipping
To catch her,
Should she fall.

– s. Clark
