SNOWFALL



Welcome it, everyone, with open hearts,
from the feathery wings of angels;
Its clarity washes away each tear,
and blankets us from all angles.

The evergreens swathed in oyster white,
exquisitely adorned with holly berries;
Which light up the yard in a rosy glow,
and comfort us from our daily worries.

No longer alone, the cardinals fly,
and meet their mates high above;
Cheerfully perched upon the branches,
all nesting together with wintry love.

Gracefully floating through the air,
like delicate lace from times long ago;
We watch this glorious solstice scene,
enchanted by the sight of first snow !

About this poem

awaiting the exquisite beauty of winter's snow, a scene from my backyard.
