Sunset Plane Ride

Artist: Renee Coppock
Location: Zonta Club of Billings​ District 12​ Montana, USA​

Ice crystals dance in a cold ballet,​

Blanketing slopes, a pristine display.​

Yet, warming breaths from the skies above,​

Steal the magic, erase winter’s glove.​

Glaciers weep as temperatures rise,​

In the alpine realm, where silence lies.​

Snowpack, once robust, a vital shroud,​

No fades away, no longer proud.​

Rivers yearn for the mountain’s gift,​

A snowy bounty, their spirits lift.​

Yet the snows recede, ghostly white,​

Leaving parched lands to morning light.​

Pine trees mourn, their branches light,​

With memories of snowfall, pure and bright.​

Yet the seasons shift, a somber tune,​

As warming whispers steal winter’s boon.​

Oh, climate’s tale, a warning clear,​

As snowpacks swindle, drawing near.​

Let hearts unite, in nature’s plea,​

To save the snow, and let them be.​
