Shimmering icy serenade
Adorns bare trees with crystal crowns
Cold Nature in crystal white gowns
Caressing eyes with pure white shade
Wintry willow wands pirouette
In tandem with the drafty winds
Stirring their wintry dreams
They remain grounded on the frozen earth
Denuded yet regal in the nascent rays of sun
Whispering warm words, savoring each moment.
Silver sequins silhouette frowns
Serene, idyllic moments stayed
Indelible memories made
Echoing calmness through all towns
Autumnal foliage seeks refuge in winter cradle
To be coddled by the pristine white rays of hope
With the migratory birds crooning
Mother Earth relaxes amidst the umber caramels
Upon the Angel’s carpet of Coruscant snow
Beaming in its ethereal glow.
Embracing its icy song, with a passionate touch of divine connection
Winter’s here, with mellifluous breeze laced in its warmth of affection.
