A Ballet In White.

Evergreen leaves over glades of white
In harmony with winters spite
Now hang their heads with maidens dew
With all their glory showing through

These delicate petals in fragile cast
A life so short, not meant to last
Spread across the forest glade
With scent as if in heaven made

These gentle snowdrops full of grace
In abundance now, to fill this place
A dancing ballet all dressed in white
Caress the eye in pure delight.

There hang a million pixie caps
Enwrapped in green, perhaps to catch
The woodland nymphs that flit between
This forest glade enclosed in green.

So YOU are the little devil that has stolen all of our snowfall this year! I've been watching closely for snowflakes...but we only had a few this weekend...Actually we had about an inch or so...Sure do miss it...can we have just a little of it back?
Graham, this was a beautiful ballet and I thank you for allowing me to watch it :)

Your words dance off the tongue quit nicely, leaving a clean, crisp taste in the mouth. Ron

Enchanting Graham!

I feel compelled to trek off into the forest right now in search of these wonders...just beautiful.
