It’s late

I’ve been shoveling snow

the woods are dark deep done

and so what if I’m

done shoveling for the night

the snow is still falling

it's been falling for months

it will fall while we sleep

snow doesn’t sleep

it’s here and then it's gone

it isn't worried about your hardship

it will melt in good time

you will forget

about it all

by spring and

spring isn’t in a hurry either

you’re out of luck
