Poetry Friday: Blizzard Notes by Carl Sandburg

I selected this week's poem in honor of the release of the fantastic new novel SNOWBLIND by Christopher Golden:

I don't blame the kettle drums - they are hungry.
And the snare drums - I know what they want - they are empty too.
And the harring booming bass drums - they are hungriest of all.

The howling spears of the Northwest die down.
The lullabies of the Southwest get a chance, a mother song.
A cradle moon rides out of a torn hole in the ragbag top of the sky.

- Blizzard Notes by Carl Sandburg
