What Friends Do

shadows on snow

“There’s something about shadows
on snow,” she told me. So

I noticed too—midnight-blue shadows
of winter-stripped branches

printed on midday snow.
When you see that, you know

what it has to mean:
at that moment, sunlight

is landing on leafless branches,
warming them.
