Sweet Cold by Steve Klepetar

Snow fell all morning.
I could see it piling

on the neighbors’ roof,
on the filigree of oaks.

Its softness quelled
the rage next door.

The whole road
lay quiet in sweet cold.

Steve Klepetar has received several nominations for Best of the Net and the Pushcart Prize, including four in 2016. Recent collections include My Son Writes a Report on the Warsaw Ghetto and The Li Bo Poems. Family Reunion and A Landscape in Hell are forthcoming in 2017.
