In the Gallery

snowy branches

 

Winter’s brush, with frozen bristles

Decorates the thorns and thistles –

Weaves her words to paint a spell

That beautifies the weeds as well

As ever Solomon was dressed

In kingly robes and royal crest;

Her art, expressed in silver tones,

Becomes the flesh to drape bare bones,

Makes beautiful the cold mundane,

Declares the glory of her reign.

I, who humbly view her show,

Am lured, enraptured by the snow.

    It’s surprising how many people miss snow’s spell – I’m with you on the enraptured part! I made a quick trip to Jasper this week and fell into it all over again.

    Oh WOW-Wonderful, Mel!! Enraptured, yes, quite lovely. I rather miss the sundial ones–s’pose they’re snow-covered, eh? Thinking of you with big-hearted fondness, and wishing you a happy and blessed Christmas!

      Aw, shucks, gal! I think I’ll try wading out into all that snow and see if I can’t scare up a sundial pic or two, just for you! Have been busy at work and having internet connectivity issues – but the holidays are a-comin’, and I aim to get my camera sizzling on your behalf! 🙂
