Day 4 - Life's reborn button

 

Snow

Day 1 - Softly in flurries

 

At my feet

Day 2 - A thousand tiny crystals glow

 

And all I can think about are snowball fights

toboggan rides

skating rinks and hillside slides

and snowmen smiling

tall and wide

 

White rain

Drifting like dark smuts from the sky

Floating by

And white as lilies where they lie

In layers like fluffy feathers in a paradisal dream

Beware of earthly beauties

Things aren't always what they seem

So lovely and luminous

And threatening and dangerous

It's snow

 

Whilst wind sharply whips my cheeks

And frost nips my ears and creeps within

Shivering

Day 1 - Softly in flurries

 

Veils the land

Freezing life that rests below

 

And all I can think about are warming soups in steaming mugs

huddling up in cosy rugs

and hot rum punch in sturdy jugs

 

It's chill

Velvet flakes,

melt into daggers on my back Toes feel numb

Lips begin to dry and crack, when

 

So lovely and luminous

And threatening and dangerous

It's snow

Day 1 - Softly in flurries

 

Snowball fights

Hot rum punch

And winds that blow

 

You may think of skating rinks,

Warming fires,

Steaming drinks

 

But all I can think about are

lagging pipes and balding tyres

folks snowed up n northern shires

and those for whom the snow inspires

Despair

 

Postcard scenes

Masking the threat thats always there

In thin air

Frozen fingers pinch beware!

Bewitched by rosy children on toboggans in the snow

It's easy to forget the silent enemy below

 

Enchanter and sorceress

A witch in an angel dress of snow
