Frozen in time,
put on ice
for a sunny day;
a time to rest,
my soul to keep.
Mummified in icy tomb,
Petrified in snowy case;
Sleeping deep in winter’s womb,
Snuggled down ‘neath quilted lace.
Drowser, nap the cold away,
Tucked and bundled in your bed;
Dream of Spring’s approaching day
As fairer visions fill your head.
The irony, the irony! The common name of this plant? “Snow in Summer”…
