Your Poetry: Winter in Connecticut

Too early for bed,
too exhausted for work,
I watch evening cover
western Connecticut.
Moon and stars lie
concealed by clouds;
only darkness remains
welling up from silence.
I walk among woodlots.
Narrow bridges span
creeks imprisoned in ice.
Bells of frozen iron
hang in country steeples.
From barren fields
rises that formless grief
our night calls brother.
