The Sound Muffler

The Sound Muffler

It came in the night

When all were abed

It laid on the treetops, the roofs,

The dead.  It hushed the tracks

And slowed the cars, placed a blanket on those sleeping under the stars.

The diluted sun

The down filled cloud

The citrusy halo, no heat is

Allowed, to melt the snow,

To spoil the view, the

Sound Muffler had magicked

For me and for you

The branches bent low

Tickle fast running streams

The giggle of splashes, the foamy

Ice creams.  The puff of the snowflake, grazing the earth

These sounds...

The Sound Muffler warrants their worth

Author's Notes:
A beautiful walk in snowy Scottish highlands.

It has been some twenty (+) years since I last experienced the snowy/icy blanket effect that you've described here.

I caught the sense of this work quickly.  I originally come from New England,  I don't know whether to thank you or curse for the memory.  I'll thank you for the good work and set aside the reason I moved to the southern US 30 (+) years ago... to get away from the cold.

I could envision this in my mind as I read it...Very beautiful! Well written with a lilting flow that was very engaging!
