Snow

When a hush lies across the land

Stillness rare and precious

When the birds flit bright in the forest

Sparks of the flame of life

When the sea lies calm under a layer of crystals

An opaque expanse of serenity

Winter’s gift graces the world

Snow…

Flakes of magic drift from the sky

Frozen star kisses

Cold and sharp and pure

Gentle and intricate and beautiful

Transient against the heat of life

Giving their lives en masse

In the preservation of heat and light

Precious resources in the season

Of dark, of cold…

They coat the land in glittering, sparkling, white

Bringing joy and wonder and comfort

As they burn bright and fast

A sweet counter to the bitter cold

In our most desperate season

We are blessed by the magic of snow.
