Behind a winter fort, cardboard
swords twirl above
young heads. Others prepare
wallops of snow,
braver ones readying for
a frontal assault,

remembers his youth
from similar round table days. Now
rooming at the Nursing Home,
his new fortress. The only
snowballs flung in faraway dreams,
a steed replaced by
twirling wheels from an old
wheelchair. Memories linger as he
remembers those rushing
feet, swords swirling
snow hurling, and shouting:
