A second helping dipping

"The branches were dipped in frosting this morn"



and the sun cast a fairyland spell;



Each fragile twig looked feathered and white
and beckoned a heart to swell.

A winter treasure - a sight to behold -


while silence augmented the scene;


I wanted to walk through an open gate
to find the artist, supreme.


No gate could I see, the artist unseen,

awe captured my soul;


The canvas would change, as nature intended,



but I'd witnessed her morning's goal.


(By Joan Adams Burchell)


If this poem sounds familiar it's because I used it last year with a different series of frost pictures that I took at our old house. You can see them here.

Great shots, too! :-) I wish that stuff would stick around longer - it just seems like everything is so peacefully quiet when the tree frost is here.

Wow, those are good pictures. Here's hoping tomorrow the weather is in the 20's for you!
