Through the Ice by

But if you walk on ice and hear the heavy cracking sound, / if you walk on frozen water and fall through, / keep your clothes on, / they add buoyancy, / do not lose consciousness. / If you fall in, / fan out your scarf and parka / Ophelia-like, / turn in the direction you came / because it held you once, / place your arms on the unbroken surface of the lake and kick.
