Snow & Sweat Haiku

……………………….
The snow came. It piled
to the swing-top on the porch:
muscle and shovel

Some are snow-happy
at this precipitation
at each bank, the drifts

—blowing with my Troy
it is inexplicable:
my cold feet, their joy

I would sooner sweat,
the sun afire, ground brown
not so still, so cold
