A Winter Night

Powdery white snow blanketed the trees
Where boughs beckoned to us so peacefully.
The earth was once green and brought flowers and joy.
Up in the black sky stars can tell us stories.
The cold winter night lasted
But the world was warm in my home,
Covered with quiet snow.
A memory of a rose flickered
And then a whisper of one returned
By firelight, quickened.

    Such a peaceful bit of poetry; how could anyone but love it.
    (and Adeline is correct; Frost would surely love it too!)

    As a Frost fan I agree-so delicately painted-Serene and sincere- needs to be rated

    This one that would please even Robert Frost. Take a look at mine - Frost Flowers.
