Silent Snow

No wind disturbs this winter night

As snowflakes dress the world in white

And I look up in supplication

To crystals falling from creation


Each flake a sparkling solitaire

Beneath the street lamps hollow glare

Alights with brethren on the ground

In quiet reverence most profound


For in the magic of this scene

I glean a moment so serene

That all at once I comprehend

And in silent snow transcend

Ah...I thought of her write when I was reading this..The silence of a snow-covered landscape is truly magical.. "Each flake a sparkling solitaire".. I like that..The intelligence behind nature is evident to me..If snow flakes were not made to interlock, there would be no water stored for the rivers and streams. We would not be here, if not for that complex little design...len

This is sooooooooo beautiful, it makes me want to cry.

I was testing your good nature, when I stole your inspiration. And also, because the best has to go last, as with everything.

You have touched my heart.

Thanks !!!
