simple gifts

like passing by
on a snowy evening
or treading on dreams,
you floated my way,
itinerant and free.
crouching indian-style,
the earth at your ear,
you presented your gifts.
pajama-clad, i mirrored you
and received your bounty:
a torrent of words to follow.

(Hat tip, of course, to gifts from Robert Frost and William Butler Yeats.)
