Winter Thaw (an edited re-post)

No gold complexion
warms the table
Only gray
 Its modest pall
cloaks the dawn
 as wind-song
falls away
 and through staid trees
tear- melodies
splatter the face of earth  
as she swallows 
drab snow-flake seas
in her gracious mouth
Gripping winds recoil and ponder
This dashing, splashing
gray array
surging from earth's south-east corner
perplexing winter's 
Stiff foray
