Winter trees stand sleeping in the cold

Last night I took a look through the treasures of poetry that our friend Karen has sent over the years, and I came across this poem she sent a year ago. Lori took these photos yesterday at our snow encrusted house. May your days grow longer, and may you stay warm these winter nights.
Winter Trees
by William Carlos Williams

All the complicated details
of the attiring and
the disattiring are completed!
A liquid moon
moves gently among
the long branches.
Thus having prepared their buds
against a sure winter
the wise trees
stand sleeping in the cold.
