Freezing Rain Falls

The sky is black in early evening
the sullen skies pour forth
a gentle even, inexorable flow
of tinkling sparkling ice.

It sticks to earth, dried grass and steps
and hides the greenhouse roof.
I’m glad I took the seedlings
to a warmer upstairs room.

The stream had ice a couple of days ago when the temps went up to 70 degrees.
