winter haiku d’hiver – a dusting of snow = la neige légère


winter haiku d’hiver – a dusting of snow = la neige légère

a dusting of snow
in the fading twilight 
where once sweet birds sang

where once sweet birds sang 620

la neige légère
au crépuscule si pâle,
les oiseaux partis

Richard Vallance
