|CHICAGO LAKEFRONT NOVEMBRRRRR
The great fountain silenced.
Veils of prismed rainbows disappeared.
Hot dog stand closed.
Ice-cream truck gone.
Childrens' glee vanished.
Snow-fences station the beach.
“DANGER” signs sneer.
A college student huddles, back to stiff winds.
A white Labrador dares the roiling waves.
Racing leaves scurry grey like fleeing mice.
Miles out, in choppy slated water,
Sun teasing light through clouds,
Sailboats tack North and South
Sulking to their winter moorings.
