Winterscene, where snow crystals make a sparkling glass winterscape. Behind the scene of crystal icicles, is a lovely cottage.
“Laughter is the sun that drives winter from the human face.”

A Crystal of Snow
M. Lucille Ford
A crystal of snow is a wonderful thing
With texture as fine as a butterfly’s wing;
With network of atoms like filmy spun lace,
Or petal arrangement of air flower face.
A crystal of snow is a beautiful thing
With the sparkle of drops what to spiders’ webs cling
On a bright dewy morn; and the luster of pearl;
Or a diamond gleam on a glistening curl.
A crystal of snow is a curious thing-
With dew of summer – or rain of spring-
And frost of autumn mixed into it all
The flowers of cloudland that earthward do fall.
