Crisped All Around

And then,
the frost plunged
into night,

a driven knife
down from the North.

And by morning,
the leaf-strewn ground

had crisped and hoared
here all around —

T’was a proper penguin beach.

  2. “A driven knife down from the North” – that’s so vivid. “crisped and hoared” is lovely too. You’ve used the words so lightly and so well.
