Shepherd

Across the frozen road
Wriggles the serpentine snow

When urged by shepherd’s goad
Their tails whip to and fro

Their rhythmic winding motion
Advance them with a slither

As they heed the zephyr’s notion
Twisting hither and thither

Herded in one direction
A journey devoid of care

Corralled without objection
They glide to here and there
