This is an evocation of a Canadian Prairie winter – cold, harsh, alienating. But at its centre, Lorna Crozier’s poem tells the story of a small child, who feels completely safe in her mother’s love for her, a love that is tender, steadfast, primal. Leslie Uyeda has tried to depict this fierce love, which the surrounding bleakness cannot extinguish.
