Fairies paint the frozen crystals
that glide softly to hide the bitter earth.
Trees eagerly submit to these moist kisses,
tenderly watching each new flake's birth.
Winter releases the magic of frost,
allowing faulty human eyes to see the icy art.
Frozen blossoms decorate all fragile windows,
blessing the distracted world with winter's heart.
Cold wind tastes the warm human cheeks,
as it rushes to greet heaven's snowy breath.
A blanket of snow covers the weary ground,
whispering of autumn's early death.
Sidewalks cling to each puddle of ice,
making winter smile when humans fail to stand.
Winter's hand caresses the wounded soul,
bringing a white peace to a tired land.
