Gary Snyder: "Pine Tree Tops"

                                                  in the blue night
                                                  frost haze, the sky glows
                                                  with the moon
                                                  pine tree tops
                                                  bend snow-blue, fade
                                                  into sky, frost, starlight.
                                                  the creak of boots.
                                                  rabbit tracks, deer tracks,
                                                  what do we know.

"Pine Tree Tops" by Gary Snyder, from Turtle Island (New Directions, 1974).
