A Walk Through the Snowy Copse

Into the snow white castle only tepid feet bound Head mirror of quilted bed reflects a glimmering compound Satin blanket spreads over each frozen mound A blinding glare from the silted bed doth rebound With each heavy step mist arises from fluffed goose down Arching o'er head a crystalline canopy doth crown The hooded frames as glowing sentinels ballast ground The woody rails in their icy coat of arms surround As tempest blows, crackling arms in groaning chorus resound From portholes beaming, frozen pellets wayfarers confound Alighting from pillowy perches, Red-shouldered hawks with wings unwound Strafe the bystanders; with their prickly dander doth hound A fibrous parapet of occluded, twining roots shields ground Each truant sole straying from the beaten path will impound Buried stumps as pulpy landmines on periphery abound The errant, plodding heel with shocking pain to redound Pace must quicken in the late afternoon stound Dusk's chilling tides o'er snowy copse leaves laggards spellbound As the last rays of light funnel into the background Enchanting visions of woodland nymphs mind's eye doth astound
