A Frozen Tale

By M.G. Knight

Image result for winter wonderland

Christmas white, sparkling bright

Across the snow-swept glade

Stars of light in the velvet night

Twinkling like beads of jade.

Glass between what is seen

Beyond the frosted pane

A fire behind, the marshmallow-roast kind,

Crackling and cackling like stone-ish rain.

Snowflakes sail in the windswept gale

And above the river’s purloined flow.

All is still, listening to winter’s will,

Glazed with silver and moonglow.

I breathe it in and wonder when,

As I stare out at this sparkling land.

For all is merry, all is bright

Upon this snowy night.
