Two mallards from the lake would trek up through the snow to our yard.

Like ambition
with orange webbing, they
transcend the desperation
of winter
in a blush of green
on the face of white.
Their blue water
has been fettered,
yet they remain implacable.
In this cold desert
they disregard arduous dunes,
retain the ancient spontaneity,
and invest
in survival.
We part the curtains
to expose the landscape,
then reward
  the account
with a convening
at the gate.
