A Winter Poem

You're probably all 'It's still autumn!', well, I was convinced otherwise this morning when I woke up and everything was covered up in white, fluffy, delightful snow. It was about a foot thick and we're supposed to get more! We started school late and went sledding this morning, and we had such fun.

The Snow Fairy {by Claude McKay}
Throughout the afternoon I watched them there,
Snow-fairies falling, falling from the sky,
Whirling fantastic in the misty air,
Contending fierce for space supremacy.
And they flew down a mightier force at night,
As though in heaven there was revolt and riot

And they, frail things had taken panic flight
Down to the calm earth seeking peace and quiet.
I went to bed and rose at early dawn
To see them huddled together in a heap,
Each merged into the other upon the lawn,
Worn out by the sharp struggle, fast asleep.
The sun shone brightly on them half the day,
By night they stealthily had stol'n away.

And suddenly my thoughts then turned to you
Who came to me upon a winter's night,
When snow-sprites round my attic window flew,
Your hair disheveled, eyes aglow with light.
My heart was like the weather when you came,
The wanton winds were blowing loud and long;
But you, with joy and passion all aflame,
You danced and sang a lilting summer song.
I made room for you in my little bed,
Took covers from the closet fresh and warm,
A downful pillow for your scented head,
And lay down with you resting in my arm.
You went with Dawn. You left me ere the day,
The lonely actor of a dreamy play.

How exciting, Lulu!! Snow! It is sooooo beautiful to photograph! ;) wink, wink. We're supposed to get some snow here in a couple days (I hope the weather-predictor is right)
but only God knows when exactly He wants to send us snow.
That was a very interesting (in a good way, trust me!) poem! I love how it rhymes; so clever. Hymn and poem-writers are so creative!
