Not always is the sky so blue
above the mountain's snows...
Sometimes, the weather changes and southerly winds blow
bringing the clouds dark with rain
to make the snow dangerous to ski.
That happened Tuesday last
as I went for a randonnée a ski
up from Abondance;
towards the Pic de Corne.
This was only an exercise in exercise
but tiring and hugely enjoyable nevertheless.
A good climb of about 470m rewarded
with a bol de soupe à l'oignon,
and a few glasses of
A good ski down as the clouds let go their snow
was as much as I needed.
That and a promise to return when skies
above the snows are blue.
