Jack Frost


by Jim Rapp
 
It is cold in Wisconsin this week.
The lifted shade reveals that frost
has formed a telltale streak
across the glass – three inch at most.
 
Jack Frost has been at work,
but Jack has lost his claim to fame;
alas, a feeble pallid smirk
runs artlessly across the thermal pane,
 
unlike the leafy sunlit marvels
Jack could paint on single panes,
in mansions and in hovels,
in his younger carefree days.
