In this special feature of our issue today, we are running “Snow Cover,” a poem taken from Michael Finch’s new collection of poetry, Finding Home.

Snow Cover

Of a snowfall that stills the world,
A windless, cold, silent, enveloping quiet—
Only the crunch falls under laden foot, crackling trees from the weight
Of a blind white cover that removes time; souls sleep.
A bright azure sky above, a sun that warms not;
A brittle freeze of breath iced and bone-chilled air;
A peace, a stillness, a calmness kept.
The madness covered, swept, blinded over
Of a blanket from nature’s fury, rests the world tonight.
