Winter under cultivation
Is as arable as spring.
— Emily Dickinson
Let’s see, how could that be?
Aha! — We’ll live on winter squash (above), and snow peas, iceberg lettuce, and frozen corn — And then we’ll have the “greens” of winter — since everything sweetens up with the frost (or so it’s said) —
As a diet, a little sparse and austere, perhaps — but then, so is Emily Dickinson’s poetry.
Might we call it “frost-kissed?”
