As the Frost Fairies frolicked
in the garden last night,
whether giddy amnesia or fanciful flight
distracted them, humans will never discover –
but their magical Frost Wand was never recovered!
Pompous pines and smug cedars,
set aside superiority –
God released the Frost Fairies,
those celestial ladies-in-waiting
whose expertise is festal fashion;
even the Ugly Ducklings
even the weeds are winsome
in their fanciful finery.
The Great Equalizer,
frost paints all with the same brush –
seedling and signpost,
lilac and lantern,
thorn and thicket,
grass and grapevine;
all are exquisitely,
for the Ball.
