Feathered Quill

Feathered quill with which to write,

dainty brush to paint the scene,

fairy broom, a floor’s delight,

fancy headdress for a queen.

Lingering seed tufts, hangers-on

upon the stalk of summer’s birth;

first to greet pale winter’s dawn,

first to welcome snow to earth.

  3. This is both pretty and powerful! I just got that lovely first snowfall feeling reading this, and we are a long way off from that… Now I can’t wait for some snow to take pictures of.
